A small, but very enjoyable museum with free admission. They have a nice display of artifacts from all the armed services and also captured equipment inside, and quite the collection of tanks outside. In addition, they have a F-86, F-4, and MiG-21 on display. One side note is that the museum is at the airport and Air National Guard base and there were A-10s flying around during our visit. Getting in is a little weird. It looks like you are coming up to the gate of the base, but you turn left into the museum parking lot just before the gate.

It was pretty cool to see a lot of old things that people used and had a while back in time. There's stickers for free. Most of the things are inside but if you want to see planes and tanks those are outside

WWI and WWII displays! Tanks and airplanes and mortar shells...what more could you want? Admission is free, with donations encouraged. They also have a shop with well priced toys and history books.

This is definitely worth the stop. I enjoy learning about the military history of our country and this museum does a good job explaining it. They tie in Idaho into the history which makes it more interesting. I can't believe all of the pieces they have in the collection. They cover the Civil War through the Iraq War. They have small (infantry items) to large (Tanks & Jet Fighters). This is a donation only museum. Please go enjoy and supply a donation.
