Absolutely loved this museum! Great place to visit for everyone! Packed full of artifacts from different periods of this countries wars! Especially cool that a lot of the artifacts are centered around Idaho and the men and women who served our nation who hailed from Idaho. Especially loved the tanks and planes they have for viewing. I highly recommend this place to everyone and is great if you're on a budget and want something to do cause it's completely free to check out, so get on down and check it out!
This museum exceed our expectations. The staff was friendly and helpful. The exhibits were more than what we expected. When first arriving we were wow'ed by the tanks on property from the classic Sherman to the huge gun on the Howitzer. There was an impressive displays from every branch of the military and history on almost every major US conflict. Lot's to learn here. Even had 3 vintage jets on site. We recommend this for the entire family.
