For 70 years the Boise Art Museum has provided an imaginative excursion for all the senses. Wander through the airy sculpture garden or admire one of the pieces from the museum's 15 galleries.

A wide range of activities are offered for children and adults including tours and annual events including the popular Art in the Park .

there were no paintings or traditional art

The outside of this gallery might seem a bit unassuming, but once inside, the gallery is anything but plain. Bold
