“The State Historical Museum will greatly expand visitors’ understanding of Idaho’s history through compelling and engaging exhibits that illuminate how Idaho’s unique geography shaped our culture and communities. Through a multidisciplinary lens of history, science and culture, students will learn Idaho history and develop creativity and problem-solving skills critical to their future development. As an educator, I also am excited about the chance for all Idahoans to have an unforgettable learning experience at our new museum.”

“Through Dia de Los Muertos and other family programming, our State Historical Museum has been exceptional in creating programs with community partners.  This type of programming demonstrates to the community the organization’s high level of respect and regard for serving Idaho’s diverse people and commitment to providing engaging family learning opportunities.”
