Discover the fascinating history of the State of Idaho from prehistoric times through fur trading days, the gold rush and pioneer settlement. The Idaho State Historical Museum, founded in 1907, is Idaho's largest and most popular museum. Richly detailed interiors show how Idahoans in the late 19th and 20th centuries lived and conducted business. Exhibits about the state's Native American, Chinese and Basque populations are also presented. Exhibits change periodically and special events are held throughout the year.
