Join one of our 1.5-hour walking tours with a local historian through the streets of Coeur d’Alene and learn about the city’s early history.

Tickets are $15/adults and $7.50/youth and include admission to the Museum. All walking tours depart from the Museum of North Idaho.

Downtown Coeur d’Alene Walking Tour
Learn about Coeur d’Alene’s early history from the impacts of the mining and lumber industries to the steamboats and hydroplane races on Lake Coeur d’Alene. The Downtown Coeur d’Alene walking tour is just over one mile long and takes place mostly on city sidewalks.

Fort Sherman Walking Tour
Nestled along the banks of Lake Coeur d’Alene and the Spokane River, Fort Coeur d’Alene (later renamed Fort Sherman) was established in 1879. The campus of North Idaho College now sits on the fort grounds, but a few original buildings still remain. Learn about the history of the fort and the city that formed around it. The tour finishes with a visit inside Fort Sherman Chapel, the city’s oldest church, school, library, and meeting hall. The tour is just over 1.5 miles long and takes place mostly on sidewalks and paved roads. The Fort Sherman Chapel is a historic building and does not have an accessible entrance.
