The Basque Museum & Cultural Center

The Basque Museum & Cultural Center provides a look into the heritage of the Basque communities of Idaho and surrounding areas.

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 by 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.

Come see our current exhibit, "Basque Whaling: Danger and Daring on a Distant Shore"

The chilling waters and rocky shores of North America's eastern bays hold long-buried secrets of the ancient Basque whaler, secrets waiting to be told. The story of these men who risked their lives in this bold pursuit will unfold as the Basque Museum and Cultural Center unveils its newest exhibit. click here for more info
