Museum Tour & Discussion

June 13, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Come visit the Idaho Museum of Mining and Geology for an up-close and personal tour of the museum at 2455 Old Penitentiary Rd, Boise.  IMMG Board President Steve Cox will lead participants on a 30 minute museum tour with the remainder of the hour for individual discovery. This is a great opportunity to explore the interactive exhibits, see our world-class meteorite collection, authentic mining camp and check out the seismograph that records earthquakes around the world in real-time.  This is great fun for families and anyone interested in Idaho geology!

Plan to stay and browse 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.

We are following CDC guidance for Covid-19: masks recommended but not required.

Museum Members Free, Non-members $5.
