Become a Member of the ISHS Family

When you join the Idaho State Historical Society, you become a part of our membership family that shares a common goal: to connect people with Idaho’s past in order to better understand the present and enrich our future. You will also enjoy a wide variety of benefits including complimentary admission to our sites, our Mountain Light newsletter, invitations to special events, and much more.

Although state funding provides many of the facilities and staff needed to accomplish the work of the Idaho State Historical Society, our education programs, exhibits, collections, and outreach are made possible with membership support.
