The Idaho Museum of Natural History is the official state natural history museum of Idaho, located on the campus of Idaho State University. Founded in 1934, it has collections in anthropology, vertebrate paleontology, earth science, and the life sciences.
In May 1977, the Idaho State Board of Education adopted a resolution requesting that Governor John V. Evans designate the Idaho State University Museum as the Idaho Museum of Natural History (IMNH) and signed into law on July 1, 1977. In 1986, the Idaho State Legislature confirmed the IMNH as Idaho’s official state museum of natural history.

IMNH houses over 500,000 specimens in collections. The Museum collects, preserves, and documents the natural history of Idaho and the Intermountain West.
