September 13, 2017

POCATELLO — The Idaho Museum of Natural History on the campus of Idaho State University will open its doors free of charge on Saturday, Sept. 23, as part of Smithsonian magazine’s 13th annual Museum Day Live!, an initiative in which participating museums across the United States emulate the spirit of the Smithsonian Institution’s Washington D.C.-based facilities, which offer free admission every day, and open their doors for free to those who download a Museum Day Live! ticket.

“We are thrilled to partner with the Smithsonian and bring their programming to the Pocatello community,” said Leif Tapanila, IMNH Director.

While at the museum enjoy Be the Dinosaur, Living with Fire, and I Love ISU: the exhibit. I Love ISU explores the history of ISU through historic photographs, artifacts, and stories.

The Museum Day Live! ticket is available for download at Smithsonian.com/museumday. Visitors who present the Museum Day Live! ticket will gain free entrance for two at participating venues on September 23, 2017. One ticket per email address is permitted.
