If you would like to visit our museum during the closed hours, we offer appointments for private tours. We offer the same services that are available during our open hours but can accommodate large groups better during these times. Example of such groups are Scout and Mutual groups as well as large family groups. These tours also allow for family members to come and visit items that were donated by their families or learn more about their unique family history.
School Field Trips
We would like to invite you to bring your class to the Museum of Rexburg: Home of the Teton Flood Exhibit for a field trip. We have many fascinating displays including our children’s craft area and scavenger hunts. Our display about the Teton Flood includes a twenty-five minute documentary that explains the effect the flood had on Rexburg as well as Sugar City, Idaho Falls, and other surrounding areas. Come and take advantage of these displays and the opportunity to learn more about our Rexburg Heritage. Contact the museum to learn more about our school discount.
Because of the difficulty of trying to accommodate everyone toward the end of the school year, we encourage you to make your appointment to visit us early. This will guarantee you an open spot and give our Museum staff plenty of notice to get adequate coverage for your groups.
Outreach Education Classes
Our outreach program offers one of our staff to visit a classroom and provide a presentation on a topic of your choice about our local history. This could be about the flood, the early settlers, a certain time period, etc. We could also explain how we do research and the importance of recording our own histories and stories.
History Detective Kits
Our History Detective Kits are a fun interactive game that teaches students about different subjects through the use of solving clues and puzzles. They are perfect for individual classrooms or even for a whole grade. Museum staff are available to run the game in the classroom. We currently have three different topics to choose from. They are Rexburg, St. Anthony, and the Teton Dam. Contact the museum to reserve.
