The Museum of Idaho is devoted to preserving and presenting the sciences, natural and cultural history and the humanities as well as offering new experiences and unique educational programs. The building that houses this marvelous museum was original constructed in 1916 as the Andrew Carnegie Library, and would be converted into a museum in 1982. By 2003, it would be able to enlarge itself with another 20,000 square feet of spaces. It provides international and national permanent and traveling exhibitions, like A T. Rex Named Sue in 2003, Discovering Idaho: The World of Lewis and Clark in 2004, Giant Insects: 2004, Titanic: 2009, Lincoln: Preservation of a Nation: 2009 and many other that are both informative, interesting and meaningful. Permanent exhibits include; Eagle Rock, Lewis and Clark in Idaho and Race for Atomic Power; with special seasonal exhibits like the Olde Fashioned Christmas from 2007 to the present. One of the newest exhibitions that is currently being showcased at the museum is called A Grateful Nation: A Look Back at World War II that is linked to the upcoming 70th anniversary of our entrance into WWII, when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on December 7, 1941, a day that will live on in our hearts and minds forever, like the anniversary we all celebrate on September 11th, but not ever to remember the horrors and the sadness that still lingers in our hearts but to celebrate the lives and loved ones of those that died in that cowardly act. The museum also has an exhibit of local history that includes Idaho Falls and Bonneville County; with another exhibition called Bonneville County, 1911-2011: A Centennial Celebration that was created by gathering memorable pieces from the museum's own collections that include more than 20,000 relics that have become significant to the culture and history of the region.
