The Museum of Idaho is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a free admission day. For the first time since the museum's opening in 2003, visitors are enjoying the activities for free.


Dozens of people waited for doors to open Monday morning to take advantage of Free Admission Day at the Museum of Idaho.

Kids could ride the carousel and take a look at art and history exhibits.

Organizers say Monday's event is about giving back.

"We are not a sustainable museum, meaning if we continue to operate the way we have, we won't be here for long, so we're turning to the community for their support," said Director of Marketing Britni Storer.

All donations made during the event will go toward the museum's sustainability/endowment fund.

Free admission day ends at 8 p.m. Monday.
