Boise, ID

Where are we going?

Idaho Black History Museum
508 Julia Davis Drive


What is there to do?

Formerly a St Paul Baptist Church dating back to 1921 (with a strong black history connection itself), today the building serves as the Idaho Black History Museum, where you can explore the general exhibits that cover a number of topics, from slavery, the Civil Rights Movement, Martin Luther King Jr and more.

Whilst much of the content is specific to the state of Idaho, you don't need to be a lover of history to find the exhibits interesting, as there are also stories of present day African-Americans who are making their mark, offering great inspiration to kids who visit!

Make sure you take time to check out the artworks within the Idaho Black History Museum. Pablo Rodriguez Jr was inspired to create a large piece of art that tells the incredible journey of Black Americans in the US. It also commemorates the election of the first American-American President of the US!

This works well with the From Salve To President exhibit where key people and events are covered in telling that same fascinating journey.

An invaluable learning experience for the family at the Idaho Black History Museum in Boise.
