Back in June, the Idaho Black History Museum announced that budget shortfalls were forcing it to severely cut back staff and operational hours. So, instead of being a full-time community asset, the museum is now only open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays. The museum is the only one of its kind in the Pacific Northwest, so if it doesn't find some financial backing, the region will lose a valuable piece of its culture.
Try as we might, we can't find anything funny about a cultural museum being on the bubble.
