You’ll see Idaho rocks and minerals, a touch-screen map of Idaho Mining Districts, a world-class meteorite exhibit, an authentic mining camp, a Buzz Saw shark exhibit, the well-known Fujii Collection of polished minerals from Idaho and elsewhere, wall graphics explaining Lake Idaho/Lake Bonneville, as well as information on the Yellowstone hotspot. Plus, the museum has a seismograph that constantly records earthquakes from around the world!
