BOISE -- For the 39th year, the Museum Comes to Life event gave visitors an up close and personal look at Idaho's history.
The exhibit, at Julia Davis Park and the Idaho State Historical Museum Saturday, featured live exhibits, performing artists in song and dance, and various demonstrations.
From a giant Idaho potato - to yarn spinning and wagon wheel repair - actors did their best to give people a visual sense of history.
"Kids get to come and realize that there were different crafts and skills previously than there are now, some of which are being lost," said Idaho Historical Museum spokeperson Anne Schorzman.
In addition to demonstrations, kids got to take part in various hands-on learning activities, like leather braiding and gold panning.
The Museums Comes to Life exhibit is held annually on the last day in September, and is sponsored by the Idaho State Historical Society, the Friends of the Historical Museum, and Boise City Department of Arts and History.
