Experience the World in Idaho


Learn.  Discover.  Explore. 


The Idaho Museum of International Diaspora (IMID - pronounced 'eye mid') is an innovative multipurpose approach to a traditional museum model that will highlight the lives of diaspora groups from within Idaho and around the world through art, food, culture,

music, literature, the environment, and additional creative platforms to invite 

and share the human journey stories.

The IMID defines diaspora as the involuntary displacement of peoples – children,

families, individuals of all ages – from their origin homelands. 

Not only will the IMID focus on past and current lives of diasporas in Idaho, it will also capture the lives and experiences of diasporas around the world and how their human journeys have enriched host countries and cultural traditions that societies

around the globe continue to enjoy.
