Not all museums require respectful quiet contemplation and calm introspection. Standing and looking at dinosaur fossils or artwork is fine, but not all that interactive. Barring an opportunity for DNA splicing, people just walk around and look at stuff. It’s often a boring place for children to go on field trips during school.

Museums are meant to inspire people to see the world as it was, is, and could be. Information and innovation are key to keeping patrons returning to museums time after time. Sometimes, people don’t have to go to the museum. Believe it or not, sometimes the museums travel to where the people are.

Where to Go for Children's Museum of the Magic Valley Summer Fun

Enter the Children’s Museum of the Magic Valley. CMMV is ready to inspire children on a joy of learning journey. There are events scheduled throughout July and August to keep kids thinking and having fun at the same time.

The Filer Library will get a visit as well as the 2nd Market South Yard doing hands-on STEAM exhibits. August has a special visit at the Herrett Center and then it’s to Filer for the last hurrah before kids go back to school.

LOOK: These Twin Falls Drivers Completely Ignore Train Crossing Signal

After a heavy storm in Twin Falls, we decided to go around town and drive through some flooded intersections. We didn't make it very far before the infamous train crossing got us. We actually only sat there about 8 minutes before help arrived...but those 5 minutes were insane! What would you have done in this situation?
