This art museum on the river has rotating art exhibits--they change every few months--and it's a great place to see regional art. It's well worth the small admission fee.

The first Saturday of every month is free admission to the Art Museum. My family loves the opportunity to go and see the current exhibit. There is a play area for children to explore different mediums of art which is good for those who get antsy looking at the exhibit. Occasionally there is a family day with crafts provided! The...

Idaho Falls had been lacking in cultural activities when this museum was started and opened its doors. I love the art work and every Christmas they have an art festival/fair where local artists can sell handmade pieces of art and you can buy an original. Lovely. They also sponsor a 100 mile bike ride every August as a fund raiser.... More

This little art museum packs a lot in, and makes an enjoyable stop to see something different. Their exhibits change regularly, and are always interesting. I believe they occasionally have art-type classes, or hands on displays as well. The volunteers have always been extremely friendly, ready and willing to answer questions-a big thanks to those who help make this wonderful... More
