Bringing the world to Idaho, and Idaho to the world

The Museum of Idaho engages, educates, and enlightens through exhibits, collections, and informal educational opportunities in the humanities and sciences.

Debuting in the new exhibit hall...

Gawk at dinosaurs that inspired Charles Darwin's voyage of discovery as well as possessions that accompanied him on his way. Darwin & Dinosaurs is now open.

October 18, 19, 25, 26

Our most sought-after program is back, taking you inside four historic downtown Idaho Falls locations, sharing all-too-real stories from their sordid pasts, and bringing along a medium and a ghostologist, because hey -- it's Halloween.

All tickets are sold out for this event.

Volunteer @ MOI

Day-to-day operations at the museum would be impossible with out our army of talented volunteers. We welcome adults to help us lead tours, work in the museum store, and more. With a variety of available jobs and schedules, volunteering at the Museum of Idaho is a simple, fun, and fulfilling way to give back.
