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 duirng our open hours but can accomadate 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.
Outreach Education Classes
Our outreach program offers one of our staff to visit a classroom and provide a short 20 minute 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.
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 room 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. We have set aside Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays for school group openings during the Fall and Winter months.
