Located conveniently where parking is easy (and one hour is free with a voucher from the museum). I visited for a specific reason: to find some information about the City of Coeur d'Alene in the very early 1900's. I was told by a local to see a certain person who was an "encyclopedia of CdA" but alas, she was busy... More

This is super small but has a plethura of odd information and interesting photos and objects. Only took 15 minutes to walk though, if that.

Don't blink or you will miss it. Somebody please come to the rescue of this tiny museum on prime real estate. It could be so much better...why don't the art students at NIC pitch in and use this museum to showcase their talent displaying the history of this area including the bio's of colorful or important area folks and artwork....

How often do you get to go to a museum that gives detailed history of the exact place that you are? Well, that is the Museum of North Idaho. While small, it was inexpensive and interesting. I bought an Idaho potato cookbook while I was there and already made one of the recipes. Definitely worth the $4 admission price.

I dn't think the exhabits have been changed in 20 years. If you visitonce and learn about the looging industry of North Idaho you don't have to return the second time.

The location is fabulous. We have been going to this museum for years and it's always the same and always sad. There is so much history in the area and the museum doesn't capitalize on it. Coeur d'Alene is known for its generous locals who have funded a new library, a new community facility at the Salvation Army Kroc Center,... More

This is a very small museum, but the displays are well done, informative, and educational. This is a great place to learn about local history and the uniqueness of this area. The museum volunteer was friendly and the video was interesting. The museum also has a nice selection of local history books. So while the museum is small, we all... More
