Worth stopping in to see lots of interesting local history. Takes less than an hour. Curators are friendly and helpful. You can sit and watch a show if you have time. It is adjacent to Coeur d'Alene City Park and Independence Point.

Staffed by visitors with very handy parking and no steps. This is a pleasant small museum depicting some of North Idaho's history.

I like to support local attractions and non-profit organizations so I went to this museum while I was in town. It was small and it was very historical (thus the name of the museum!). It wasn't exactly my cup of tea but I was happy to support it. They had a nice little gift shop, and the staff members were... More

The museum had some interesting information and artifacts of northern Idaho. It was definitely worth stopping by and learning more about the history of the area.

Great downtown location. Gives full history of local area. Large selection of local history books. Provides a welcome break from downtown outside activities.

Liked the docent's knowledge and enthusiasm for the area. Be sure to view the movie which features some of the highlights of Coeur d'Alene.

This was a small building, by a very nice park. There was an entrance fee of $3.00, and we felt it was not worth the $3.00/ We have visited museums all across this great nation, and this one probably rates in the bottom 10%

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.
