With more than 500 artifacts in its 80,000 square feet, the Idaho State Museum serves as a living testament to the state's legacy. Our real estate agents love exploring these incredible exhibits found at the museum.
Syringa and Treasures Galleries host rotating exhibits. Some highlight additional artifacts in the museum's collection, while others feature materials on loan from national sources.
Currently, Treasures Gallery features "The Art of Deco." This distinctive style reached its peak of popularity during the 1920s, but it lives on through the design of structures such as the Empire State Building.
During its heyday, Art Deco influenced the look of everything from clothing to toys, with examples of both on display among more than 40 artifacts. The State Historic Preservation Office has also created a digital StoryMap identifying Art Deco architecture in Boise, including the museum's original façade.
After viewing this exhibit, visitors will have a greater understanding of the iconic style's influence on design around the world. "The Art of Deco" runs through January 14, 2023.
The museum's reach extends beyond its physical location. These entertaining exhibits are as close as your smartphone, tablet, or laptop.
