The Bannock County Historical Museum houses exhibits, objects, and records relating to Bannock County and Pocatello's history. Exhibit themes include railroad history, early medical practices, general store, Victorian era parlor, Buddhist Shrine, early photography studio, Prohibition era police evidence, early fire-fighting, local printing history, historic ranching and farming tools, a Holladay Overland Stage Company stagecoach, horse tack, Shoshoni and Bannock ethnographic photographs and objects, local archaeological specimens, our unique donor wall, a research archive open to the public, and much more!
Construction for the Animal Shelter next door has made the main parking lot a navigation hazard to vehicles and humans alike. BUT WE ARE OPEN!!! Please access the Museum from the first Ave. of the Chiefs entrance off of 4th St. (the first right south of Barton Rd., behind the Veterans Memorial). The back gate will be open. Follow the gravel drive to the parking areas in front of the Ft. Hall Replica.
