What to Bring

Many of the collections are in unheated buildings or are outside, so please wear weather and seasonally appropriate clothing, and comfortable walking shoes. You might also consider bringing some sunscreen.  Handicap accessibility to some of the exhibits is limited and many of the paths between the exhibits are gravel or dirt covered.

Plan to spend a couple of hours or more, there is lots to see. If you don't see it all the first time, you are always welcome to come back.

Enjoy your chance to be away from everyday distractions.  The Emu-Z-Um is in rural Idaho and cell phone coverage is very poor in the Grand View area along the Snake River.  AT&T and it's affiliate carriers have some spotty coverage in the valley, and Verizon with it's affiliates have coverage on the Mt. Home desert before you go into the Snake River valley.  All other cell phone carriers do not have any coverage in the Grand View area.

Where to Eat

No food service is available at the Emu-Z-Um, so you should bring your own lunch if you plan to stay an extended time. There are picnic tables on site and drinks are for sale.

If you have a group that would like to use our picnic area for a party, reunion or just a visit, please contact us through our Contact Page by phone or email. Our picnic area can handle a group of around 100.

The closest restaurant to the Emu-Z-Um is in Grand View, seven miles away. Details on other restaurants in the Emu-Z-UM area can be found at our Restaurants link.
