Great place to view Idaho's place in military history, really brings the fight to a local relation.
Some very interesting equipment here! Easily the prettiest is the F-86A Sabre, but all the aircraft are great. Artillery pieces are good, too. Tanks as far back as an M4-A3 Sherman, at least. Well worth the visit!
