One of the best parts of traveling is discovering the unexpected. I had heard of Bing Crosby but he was enough before my time that i didn't know much about him. Now i'm an expert and totally impressed. His childhood home houses a small museum...More

This is Gonzaga's Bing Crosby collection, housed in Bing's actual childhood home. It's a wonderful trip back to the decades when Bing Crosby was the nation's greatest entertainer. You remember the Christmas albums, of course, but do you remember all the movies? Do you know...More

Hidden up on the Gonzaga campus, we found this place after asking at least five locals. They’d never heard of it. Beautiful architecture here and in the neighboring homes, which all seem to have been carefully restored. Informative hostess and lots of cool things to...More

The best part of seeing the home was getting additional facts from the college student who was in charge. There were displays of gold records, photographs of Bing’s immediate family, and wives and children. Interesting even for those who did not grow up with Bing’s...More

If you're old enough....yes, o.l.d you know of Bings tumultuous life. Ups n downs wives and children of each. BUT, mostly we love his music through the years and Bob Hope, too. The fun stuff. This is his childhood home. Small, by today's standards. Less...More

This house takes one back to an earlier time. It is on the small side with a kitchen I remember from my childhood. The displays are great.

A basic home illustrates Bing's modest upbringing. We did leave appreciating Spokane's hometown boy just a little bit more!

Fun to tour through. Students provide a bit of info but otherwise you’re on your own to walk through the small house where the Crosby family lived.
