This museum is a fine museum, but other galleries in the area may be better. The sculpture museum and rose garden in the back is visible without admission.

My wife and I travel all over the world and look for art museums. This museum is small but has wonderful exhibits all of the time. I have never in all of the years going to Boise Art Museum have encountered a bad exhibit.

I was drawn here by a special exhibit on Abstract Art but found much more to enjoy. Several other special exhibits in addition to the regular collection were available to view. Well lit and easy to navigate.

We visit about every 6-8 weeks when a new exhibit arrives. The permanent exhibits are good but after 3 times of seeing them, that's all I need. The new exhibits can be very very interesting. This is a nice tradition for us. It's peaceful and...More

This is a tasteful museum. For the most part, it is on one floor and small fold-out chairs are provided if you wish to sit. On this day, the featured artist was Paul Duara. It was well organized and each painting had a detailed description....More

The Boise Art Museum didn't fall into the trap so many smaller art museums do -- trying to buy some of the lesser works of well-known artists. Instead, it focused on a collection of lesser-known modern artists, choosing to highlight particularly artists from Idaho and...More

This was just at the entrance of the park. It is kind of small, but a good collection. Nice folks working there. Worth a stop when in the area.
