The Orma J. Smith Museum of Natural History showcases the fauna, flora and geological history of southwestern Idaho, southeastern Oregon and northern Nevada.

Discover the cultural significance of a Cherokee headdress and an indigenous Peruvian bow and arrow set. A bottle of sperm whale oil is the centrepiece for a display about historic whaling practices, while a falcon mummy reflects the great power once held by Egyptian gods.
