“preserve, promote, and perpetuate Basque history”
The Mission of the Basque Museum & Cultural Center is to preserve, promote, and perpetuate Basque history and culture. Boise, Idaho has long been a central location where Basque immigrants first congregated after coming to the United States from the Spanish Basque Region. As immigrants established their lives here, Basques became well known for their hard work and perseverance. The Basque Museum & Cultural Center provides a look into the Basque heritage through exhibits, collections, and tours. As a cultural center, it's a gathering place for events and educational opportunities - in which people of all backgrounds can participate in Basque activities. Located in downtown Boise, Idaho, the Basque Museum & Cultural Center provides an active central location for maintaining the Basque culture in the United States.
Would have been higher rating but the site is very small. Could easily be incorporated into one of the other museums in the area.
Informative, but fairly small. Inexpensive and an easy drop in amidst all the upscale downtown shopping sites. With land values being explosive the museum may not be able to compete for space for too many more years so catch it while you can.
