The museum has been carefully planned. There are traveling exhibits at the museum, with the current one being Space. This is very appropriate since the eclipse will be seen from the area and many preparations are being made with this in mind.

The museum offers a variety of exhibits that can be quite entertaining. The parking can be spotty when it is a popular exhibit. They have a nice gift shop as well.

The Idaho part of the museum was awesome. Very educational and interesting. They had a Roman exhibit at the time of my visit which was very interactive. Not many authentic items, but very educational none the less. Definitely worth a visit.
