The Museum displays many one-of-a-kind artifacts from the community's first 125 years (settled in 1883). From the first settlers who pioneered life in a forbidding environment to those who rebuilt the city after the 1976 devastating flood, the citizens of Rexburg have long exhibited the traits of industry, hard work, faith, resourcefulness, heartiness, and determination.
To reach out to the future, the Museum has added an interactive children’s exhibit. The old-fashioned one-room schoolhouse with hands-on displays and activities targeted at children under the age of 12. It features the wooden floor and wainscoting from the Japanese Language School, a reading loft, books by Idaho authors, costumes, a small gift shop, and supervised activities and demonstrations.
The exhibits have been made possible through grants, donations, and loans. The Museum welcomes continued support and contributions.
