Don't miss the 6th Annual International Museum Day on Sunday

May 18, 2013 

This annual event is always cool and a good "don't-miss" event for the family on Sunday.

Local museums and cultural institutions, including the Basque Museum & Cultural Center, Boise Art Museum, Boise WaterShed Environmental Education Center, Discovery Center of Idaho, Idaho Black History Museum, Idaho Botanical Garden, Idaho Historical Museum, Idaho Museum of Mining and Geology, MK Nature Center, and the Old Idaho Penitentiary, are waiving fees for the day and offering special programs.

Here's a sampling of things to check out: — Draw real and imaginary animals inspired by artwork at the Boise Art Museum. — Boise WaterShed Environmental Education Center invites you to try your hand at the toilet seat toss game – and learn where to properly dispose of pollutants. Fun and prizes. — See chemistry gone fun with the Discovery Center of Idaho, as you make your own slime to take home with you. Also, explore Newton’s 3rd law with stomp rockets you can build yourself and launch in the park. — Dig through the compost pile from MK Nature Center to discover who is doing the work. Make a wormy craft to show what you learned. Noon to 5 p.m. at various locations. For a complete listing: boisemuseums.org.
