Educational Tours

Each year, over 1000 young students travel to BYU-Idaho to gain knowledge and find that learning can be fun. BYU-Idaho students serve as tour guides and do a great job of interacting with your students. Each tour is created specifically to meet the group's needs. Popular locations to visit during your tour are the Wildlife Museum, Natural History Museum, Greenhouses, Spori Art Gallery, Planetarium, and the Thomas E. Ricks Gardens. Because many of the display areas are relatively small, large groups may be divided into smaller numbers to accommodate the space; ideally groups are 25-30 each. Please consider scheduling your tour well in advance to avoid scheduling conflicts with other school groups.
