Excellent local history museum, the 25 minute movie gives a good overview of the history of the area. Best local history book selection in town, great location next to city park pace to get away from crowds and heat, free hour parking at parking lot next to museum, very friendly staff and volunteers.
Even $4 is too expensive for this museum. Too many small bulletins to read on all the subjects; the pictures displayed are fuzzy, too dark, and too small. Updating the photos with a Photoshop program would be easy. Parking is included for 1 hour with paid admission, but you are not made aware of this until you enter the museum and then have to take your ticket BACK out to your car. This museum seems like it has not been updated since the '80s.
We were there, at Juni 2014 , a very useful Museum near the lakeside park , describing the early pioneers common lifes , and works , machinery . But the main atraction was the old enginer who was the staff , an extraordinary friendly man ! We would like to sending to him our warmest regards from Hungary !
Was I ever impressed, by the individuals who are devoted to the Museum of North Idaho and all it has to offer. There is so much history to this area and the individuals who are committed to sharing it with the general public, need to be commended! Thank you for all you do and here's to many more years of educating the public with enjoyable information.
Lots of interesting history.
