The Cassia County Museum holds items found during the past century.

The museum was established in 1972. Indian artifacts, fossils, farm tools, period clothing, household items and two train cars are featured at the museum. Visitors can also see many pieces of horse-drawn farming equipment housed in additional buildings.

Some of the most interesting exhibits include a rail car that once toured John Wilkes Booth supposed body. John Wilkes Booth was known for shooting President Abraham Lincoln. A friend convinced a judge to give him the alleged body of John. He mummified the body and toured the country. The rail car then made its way to a potato farm in Declo and found its final home at the museum.

There is also a section with history on the seven cities in Cassia County.
