This is a must see if you are in the Twin Falls, ID, area. It is very well laid out, a great experience for adults, but also attends to school-aged children with lots of interactive exhibits... more »

Located on the College of Southern Idaho campus, this museum is free to the public. It’s designed with children in mind and has a lot at their eye level and for them to touch and handle. Exhibits included displays of Native American life ways and material culture, natural science, prehistory and paleontology, art, and Mesoamericana. There is also a planetarium with a variety of shows at a very reasonable price.
This place is so amazing to visit! Found on the internet and it is so much better than i expected. If you go plan to see a show! I highly recommend this place to all ages!
I was genuinely entertained by this museum until I came across a puzzle. The lid says “stone carved monkeys”. It was a puzzle of Incan drawings to put together. I saw no monkeys, regardless of my efforts for a good five minutes. Only Incan warriors.
I go a few times a month, just to unwind. Wether its to look at the new stuff or just to sit and watch the iguana to relax.. Its just worth my time
Fun, free, friendly, with a lot of hands on activities and events throughout the year. My kids love it!
