Join us for activities for the whole family on the first Saturday in May.  This month's theme, Eureka!  You've Struck it Rich (or not), will explore gold mining in Idaho. Go back in time and try to find your gold claim with the Idaho Gold Prospector's Association, play a game with gold scales, and learn about a group of mining celebrations!

The Hands-on History schedule will continue first Saturdays through Dec. 7 and highlight themes in the Museum's featured exhibit, Essential Idaho: 150 Things that Make the Gem State Unique. The program is free with the price of admission.
