We have several tours scheduled for May but there is still time to add your group. Call (208) 736-4675 for information about hours and tours. After May 31st we will be extending our hours to 6 PM. There may also be some morning hours available if you call ahead.
We will be extending the museum hours May 31 through September 1 from noon to six. Several schools are scheduling tours in May and we hope more and more will take advantage of our programs.
While you may feel a mask isn't necessary, they are still required in the museum building. Outside you can do as you wish. We don't charge admission and it really isn't much to ask that visitors be respectful to others. The common phrases I hear is, "we're the only ones here," or "the sign doesn't say they are "required"." Well, . . . there are employees and volunteers here and the sign does say you need to put a mask on before you come in.
There are lots of maps and other informational items that previously resided in the museum basement. In the last few years we have made some progress in getting these preserved and on display upstairs. Some are in particularly bad condition, but this Bybee map transitioned to display quality reasonably well.
Repairs on the outhouse are complete and it looks so much better. The roof and back were totally destroyed during a bad wind storm, but thanks to Hagen Tubbs working on it as his Eagle Scout project, it will be in great shape for many years to come.
