About the Museum


A visit to the Appaloosa Museum

A visit to the Appaloosa MuseumThe Museum is designed to provide a self-guided exploration of exhibits that include a theater; a hands-on Kid’s Area; a library & archive featuring books, magazines, and videos; and the Apalousey Trading Post gift shop. Exhibits themes range from the early evidence of spotted horses in art and literature, to the relationship between the Appaloosa and the Nez Perce, to the highlights of the modern Appaloosa Horse Club.

Education Programs

The Appaloosa Museum welcomes school groups, home-schoolers, and youth groups such as 4H and scouts. Our standard program lasts around one hour and includes a short lecture followed by an exploration of the museum in small groups where students answer questions that help them delve into the history, present and future of the Appaloosa horse.

Part of the program is a chance to sit on several types of saddles including a sidesaddle. We are also most willing to tailor a program to meet your specific needs.

All children’s programs are free, however a donation of $1 per child, $3 per adult or $5 per family to help cover the cost of programming would be appreciated. Please contact us for more information: 208-882-5578, ext. 279
