  • RUDE man zipping around on 4wheeler screaming at an elderly woman and her grandchildren. My family has been coming here for the better half of 5 years; apparently it's not very family friendly...

  • This place was so adorable, quaint and charming. There is so much to take in along the way. I loved the positive and serene vibe of the place. It is near the Snake River and so very peaceful...

  • There really aren't any words to describe this museum. I wouldn't exactly call it a museum but more of an enchanted holy garden in the middle of a desert. It is something you have to see at least once in your life. There is a lot of walking involved and it's out in the open, so if you are sensitive to the sun, plan to go when it is not so hot out. I think everyone can find something inspiring here. There is also an interesting story behind the family that started putting this "museum" together, but unfortunately, there has been no upkeep on it in the last few years. Still worth seeing.
  • Always a fun experience. We feed the peacocks, walk the grounds and always find something new or have our favorite curiosity. If you are wondering if it's worth the drive you can always bring a picnic lunch. There are tables. Or make a day of it and hit up Celebration Park as well. There is a sign in guest book in the big yellow mailbox and they take donations to keep the place running
  • Took a trip here with some family. The people who own this place really put their heart and soul into it. Lots of sights to see along the nature trail. Very fun with the kids. Plus they got peacocks (and a couple albino/white ones) running around that you can feed with some kibble they sell on site using a quarter machine. I love the Christian theme in some areas and the motivational signs along the trail. We will be coming back next time we visit Idaho!
  • I visited in the off season when the facility was closed but was allowed to park and walk around. Located right on the Snake River. Beautiful Peacocks live on the sight and are people friendly. Just be kind in return. Definitely will return in the Summer when facility is open.
  • Truth Tell as always, myself & three others drove out to Marsing to look at some used cars, thinking this is it? Well the driver, said since we don't get out much, let's go for a scenic drive on our way back to Caldwell. Sure, why not. It was scenic alright, if you like the Winter Desert look of farmland, except for a few Big homes with white picket fences with horses included & here I thought the look belong to the state of Kentucky only. As the drive continued heading east we saw a manmade rainbow sitting on top of a hill. One person spoke up in the car saying, that's like a Museum outside, so headed that way without Goggle help. 👍 A Phillips gas station seem a little out of place, but convenient & thinking myself this is going to be Bore-Ring! Pulled up, opened & no one there except someone looking through the window for Security purposes, I guess. First look kinda creepy, as no one around at all. The rest you will have to experience for your self as a terrific walk through of much Love that was put into that Beautiful place in a Desert winter. Put on some comfy shoes & go as it is a Christian Family of Love & Heart that Created their Faith in God with the Vision for Others to See. Way Better than my thoughts couldn't even realize, let alone the many bird houses & the uplifting, positive signs of enlightment through the Whole walk that I could not imagine, until now. Oh yeah, No dogs aloud, *Animal Kind*. 🙃 Worth the trip during all seasons, with winter of cold & "No crowds"unlike Indian Creeks Festival of Lights. Tease Pic's.
