Boise is home to one of the highest concentration of Basques in the United States. The Basque Museum and Cultural Center provides a glimpse into the history of the Basques in Idaho and their old-world origins. Visitors can be guided through a historic building, the 1864 Cyrus Jacobs-Uberuaga house, which was a pioneer family home and later used as a Basque boarding house from 1910 until 1969. The museum includes exhibits, classrooms, archives, a library and a gift shop. Extended tours available after hour for groups of 12 or more, call ahead for scheduling.
