Legacy Flight Museum, Rexburg Idaho
One top place to visit in Idaho for any family would have to be the Legacy Flight Museum, located in Rexburg. This little gem, off the beaten path, holds a treasure trove of fascinating historic air planes, vehicles and other artifacts.
On the trip our family took to Legacy Flight Museum we saw airplanes dating back from just after the turn of the 20th century to dog fighting planes used in World War I and spy planes from Vietnam. There were also antique fire trucks and army jeeps from the early part of the 20th century along with numerous prints of photographs from various flights of the planes on exhibit.
In a little corner upstairs is possibly the most fascinating area, with historical artifacts dating back to the civil war era including some examples of the first printed money in our country. There are military outfits and weapons from every major war, not only from United States military but from foreign military involved in those battles too.
Besides the outfitting there were instruction manuals, currency and some home-front items such as ration books. There was almost more to see than could be taken in during one visit and we would love to return to look into it all more deeply.
The staff at the Legacy Flight Museum is mostly volunteer and are very warm and welcoming. The day we visited the man on tour duty was a Korean War veteran and added his real-life perspective to the tour, which was priceless. We highly recommend this to every family considering visiting the state of Idaho. http://www.legacyflightmuseum.com/
