All of the displays that the museum gets have been awesome. They are getting some pretty interesting history and the displays are arranged and labeled and you can spend quite a lot of time reminiscing. Come and see for yourself!

This is a small stand alone museum in downtown Idaho Falls. It is run primarily by doners, sponsors, and volunteers. They have nationwide traveling exhibits, plus a permanent exhibit of Idaho and area history. Prices are reasonable, and cover both exhibits.
