Museum of Idaho: Free Christmas Exhibit

At the Museum of Idaho they have a Christmas exhibit. It is free to the public and has the usual hours. They have lots of Santas displayed as well as gingerbread houses and nativities.

They also have a lot of special guests. When we went local new 8 was there reading Christmas stories.

They also let you go through the rest of the museum for free. It was a beautiful evening and a wonderful way to get in the spirit of Christmas.

See what we thought of our previous visit to The Museum of Idaho.

Christmas Lights and Light Shows

When my husband and I decided to go look at Christmas lights her first thought of Candy Cane Lane, which is Hartert Dr.- apparently they are supposed to put up lights but this year it was a little weak. We also went looking in Iona and there were some nice displays there but really not what we expected. We did find two very nice surprises though. One is on Hartert, across Holmes from Candy Cane Lane. There was a house decorated very well and Santa and Mrs. Claus were there. Apparently they are there weekends from 7-10pm at night. The line was super short and it was a fun way to see Santa. There was a wonderful light show, the best Idaho Falls Christmas lights that we have found. They have a radio station for you to turn to and the lights then match the music. It is fabulous- please go and enjoy.

A few weeks ago we visited the Christmas tree lighting ceremony downtown. It was really fun there was a gingerbread houses on display and Santa and sleigh rides that are free. It's quite an enjoyable night. Check out my information on the christmas tree lighting
