Very neat to see how the system worked. I liked that there were placards outside of some cells that indicated the reason for their improsonment. It was neat to be able to go see the cells and get a feel for some of the conditions the inmates lived in. I liked the section on the women who were imprisoned as there were so few of them. There are many places to be able to take great pictures; my favorite was where all the makeshift weapons that were confiscated and displayed.

Nailbanger Here Again:This was one of the Highlights to our trip to Boise. We went on Saturday morning and the metered parking downtown is free on the weekend.The Double doors that are at each end of the capital building by way of Stairways that led to below ground level were open,you can also go through the main entrance on the south side next to Capitol Park. There is a lot to see if interested, so depending on how interested you are allow plenty of time.We spent at least 90 minutes.

HISTORY HISTORY HISTORY!! So much to see it may take a couple days to get to experience everything in this little section of Boise. I don't think I got to see everything in this museum but, I did love seeing what I did. A two headed calf? Wow and getting to take pictures with Lewis and Clark garb on! Fun. The largest potato EVER! What a great place to bring the kids and let them experience stacking items in a museum and the most awe experience here?
