This small museum packs a lot of information. Tanks, planes, trucks and other large equipment stand outside. Inside there are displays covering Idaho's military history. Small gift shop. A must for history buffs.

The Idaho Military History Museum is a wonderful tribute and remembrance of those who served this country of ours. From uniforms to medals, newspaper clippings and planes, you get a feel of Idaho's military involvement and dedication. A nice day trip.
