Family Second Saturday: Panning for Gold

Will you strike it rich? Step into the shoes of an Idaho gold miner and try your luck at taking home some “gold” through our hands-on gold panning activity. Continue your mining experience by exploring the Museum to discover mining in Idaho throughout time!

All ages are welcome, and the event is free with Museum admission! Free for Idaho State Historical Society Members!

This is an ongoing event every second Saturday of the month.
