Children’s Museum of Idaho inspires and nurtures future explorers, innovators, and critical thinkers through interactive play in a safe, engaging environment with hands-on exhibits and programs designed specifically for children ages two to eight years old.
Some of our main objectives include:
Creating a dynamic hands-on unstructured educational experience where children ages 2-8, along with the adults in their lives, learn through purposeful play
Providing an enriching atmosphere that is accessible to children and their families,
regardless of their disability or income
Building an atmosphere that fosters positive intergenerational relationships by
encouraging adult-child interaction
Establishing an unplugged zone where phones and electronic devices are discouraged
