Eagle Museum of History and Preservation

Reopening

The Eagle Museum of History and Preservation is looking for volunteers! The museum is reopening on on Friday, October 15. This is a "soft opening," and some exhibits are still a work in progress. Museum hours going forward will be Tuesday-Saturday, 10 am-4 pm. The museum currently needs volunteers for all open hours, and volunteers must commit to a 4-hour shift.  Duties include opening and closing the museum, greeting visitors, giving tours, light cleaning, and answering visitors' questions. To volunteer, please contact Museum Director Alana Dunn at 208-939-2669.

History

The Eagle Museum of History and Preservation opened its doors to the public in October 2001, and since then has been actively involved with collecting, preserving, and exhibiting those items, documents, and historic photographs that combine to tell the story of the development and growth of Eagle. When the museum first opened, it was staffed entirely by volunteers, but today is overseen by a Museum Curator and is managed by the City of Eagle.

About the Museum

In addition to exhibits that focus on the growth and development of Eagle since the late 1880s, the museum houses a public access archive which contains local history pamphlet file materials, historic photographs, and numerous small specialized collections.

Group Tours

The museum offers tours for groups and classrooms, as well as Boy and Girl Scouts. The museum can comfortably accommodate 10 to 15 people at a time.  If your group is larger than 15, please call the museum so we can discuss arrangements. Any classrooms or Scouts, please be willing and able to provide the appropriate number of chaperones for the number of children attending. 

Group Tour Reservations

Please note that group reservations are needed at least two weeks in advance. Please call 208-939-2669 for reservations.

Admission

Admission to the museum is free. Donations are always graciously accepted.
