The Children’s Museum of Idaho is a place where children learn through play and exploration in environments and experiences created just for them. The interactive exhibits are designed to be manipulated by children and guided by an adult (parent, grandparent, caregiver). This hands-on approach inspires young minds to take an active role that stimulates learning and addresses the developmental needs of children. Idaho ranks last in the nation for early childhood education participation. Idaho is one of only six states that does not invest in prekindergarten or school readiness programs. The Children’s Museum of Idaho is a place where those young children, primarily 2-8, can obtain readiness skills.
