Best Local Art Gallery

Boise Art Museum

Readers' Picks

There's a difference between a museum and a gallery. A museum collects and conserves art, technology and other artifacts for the sake of some higher purpose; a gallery is a place where works are presented, organized usually by their makers, aesthetic merits or themes. In Boise, these terms are used interchangeably to describe Boise Art Museum, where works by local or gallery artists are often on display near exhibits featuring tribal art and native pottery. It's an eclectic mix at times, but, that may be part of what keeps Boiseans so enamored of BAM.
