The Teton Flood Museum was named after the June 5, 1976 flooding that was caused by waters gushing out from the Teton Dam and which eventually devastated the town. The museum was primarily established to preserve all types of artifacts related to the tragic event and these include but aren?t limited to photos, documents, and films. Upon entering the museum, visitors may notice markings of a high water line in the museum?s entrance. This represents the height level that the 80,000-gallon floodwaters reached in 1976.

The museum also has exhibits covering other subject matters such as local and regional history, particularly the first 125 years of the Rexburg community. The museum also has, among other things, an impressive collection of Idaho agate or opal, WWI and WWII artifacts, and North American animal heads.

There?s no bad time to visit the Teton Flood Museum as it launches new activities and exhibits every month. The museum?s site also serves as the location for the Rexburg Children?s Museum. The site is also frequently selected as a venue for large-scale events, thanks to its 1,000 seat auditorium in the second floor.
