“A well deserved gem”

Legacy Flight Museum
Ranked #2 of 20 things to do in Rexburg
Attraction details
Reviewed September 11, 2015

Found this museum by accident but what a great find. It's a living museum and all the planes are airworthy. Unlike some museums where the exhibits are roped off - not so in this case. Run by enthusiasts for enthusiasts and if you're not one you soon will be. 5 stars plus for the warm welcome and friendlyness

Hear ye, hear ye, all WWII airplane buffs. This is a very nice collection of WWII airplanes and all but one are still flown. Their motto: Made to Fly, Not to Sit. They have 1 of only 3 airworthy P-63s in the world! The upstairs Fort Henry Trading Post Military Museum has an exceptional collection of military artifacts dating from the Civil War to Iraq--uniforms, weapons, types of barbed wire, etc. Allow 2 hours to enjoy the collections.

This is a great experience and a great collection of airplanes. Talk to John Bagley about flying all of these planes as he is the most experienced pilot. Great times that will keep the kids interested for hours.

The airplanes that they had on display were very good. Good variety and the collection of model planes and warships was very large and fantastic. Upstairs they have a large display of military uniforms for all American wars including allies and enemies. Easy to see in small amount of space. They also have a few Army jeeps and cars on display. I would recommend this attraction for military buffs or anyone who likes transportation vehicles. They have t-shirts and other small military mementos for sale in the gift shop.

I've been in and out of aviation museums for many years, and while this one isn't the largest I've been in, it is very good. What makes it a little unusual is that all the aircraft but one are in flying condition.

Another pleasing aspect is that you can get right up to the aircraft, rather than being outside a rope cordon. I was even able to climb into one plane.

The upstairs part is loaded with artifacts from a private collection that is on loan to the museum.

The volunteer there when I visited (I think his name was Paul) was quite knowledgeable and friendly.
