  • Super small. We were only able to kill about 20-30 minutes. I've been to other natural history museums and they were much larger. The information there was nicely presented, but there wasn't much there.
  • Very well advertised, they should put that money into the museum because it is Small, very pricey, and oh be VERY careful where you park. Or you get a parking ticket from the university. If I could do it again I'd skip it.
  • This has always been a great museum. They constantly work to improve the exhibits and make it interesting. I would go here weekly as a kid and loved it every time. If you've never been before, it's definitely worth the visit.
  • It's all natural and full of Idaho's history. Not a bad way to spend an afternoon.
  • Small museum, but very cool. The exhibits change from time to time. Lots of activities to engage the public/community.
