Museum Tour and Discussion

February 27, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

IMMG Board President Steve Cox will lead participants on a 45-minute museum tour followed by time for individual discovery.

Participants are limited to 10 for this up-close and personal tour of our beautiful and small museum. You will see Idaho rocks and minerals, a touch-screen map of Idaho Mining Districts, 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!

You’ll have an opportunity to shop in our extraordinary Gift Shop with prices starting at 50 cents. We have books, rocks, minerals, rock picks, gold pans, jewelry and items for children, and more.

Masks are required.

Please contact operations@idahomuseum.org if you have questions.
