Phyllis probably isn't there anymore. I am looking for Dust Bowl Stuff for my Great Grand Son. Can you tell what you might have for sale. Virg Huston

A wonderful museum, much larger than I had expected. The exhibit on the dust bowl is excellent especially considering that Boise City was near ground zero for that. The machine shed that displayed old farm equipment was a bonus surprise as was the Santa Fe train depot. One enters through a old house designed by a student of Frank Lloyd Wright and from there enters a large exhibit building with countless artifacts of the pioneer era. Definitely well worth a stop. Go north towards Colorado at the main traffic circle. It is on the edge of town.

It is a nice, local museum with some interesting displays and good books in the bookstore. The staff is also very nice.
