Boise, Idaho has many family-friendly attractions to enjoy, including the Idaho History Museum, the Boise Art Museum, the Basque Museum and Cultural Center and the interactive Discovery Museum of Idaho, which has hands-on math/science/technology exhibits for all ages.
One of the more unique places to experience in Boise is the Old Idaho Penitentiary.
For a small admission fee, a visit to the Old Idaho Penitentiary is certainly one of the more interesting things to see in town. It’s a way to say to others you spent some time in prison– but luckily you got out in record time! See how prisoners lived, check out the cells, the gallows, and “solitary.” Some say the place is haunted– you decide. Photographers will enjoy taking pictures of the pretty rose gardens and the guard towers, and there’s a museum of old guns and weapons on the property which will fascinate many guys.
Since Boise is surrounded by nature, the scenic Boise River Greenbelt is a pet and family-friendly trail along the river where you can bike, walk, or run. It’s also a fine place to fish.
Zoo Boise is a great place to visit with small children. It’s not too big and has shady spots when you walk around so you don’t get sunburned. Kids marvel at the animals, including the zebras, monkeys and the tall giraffe.
Finally, Boise Art Glass is Boise, Idaho’s only glassblowing studio and gallery open to the public. With classes, supplies, torch/furnace rentals, custom orders, and demonstrations, it’s a unique place to take a class and create art.
