BOISE -- History actually came to life at the Idaho History Museum on Saturday, when visitors got the chance to participate in skills and crafts of days gone by through hands-on activities, including dressing up.

There were also demonstrations, railroad workers, hand weavers and blacksmiths, all giving history buffs a real-life lesson.

"They are a lot of  fun. They read up on the characters," said Ann Schorzman, from the museum. "They try to stay in character and stay as authentic as they can."

There was also music and dancers adding life to history. The Highlander Scottish bag-pipers and the Owyhee Mountain Fiddlers entertained the crowd throughout Julia Davis Park.
