Boise Art Museum scored two in the win column this year: Best local/cultural attraction/museum and best art gallery. It is definitely both. BAM not only houses some of the finest exhibits (both permanent and traveling) but also offers educational outreach programs to coincide with many of those exhibits; plays a large role in awareness of arts in this community; and has a kick-ass gift shop with some of the most unique, impossible-to-find elsewhere, one-of-a-kind items.
Second place: Basque Block
Third place: Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial
