"The local museum is an essential part of the community. It is a place where people can come together to learn about their shared history, to discover their roots, and to be inspired by the achievements of their forebears. By preserving the artifacts and stories of the past, museums provide a bridge between the present and the past, helping us to understand who we are and where we come from." - Sharon Waxman

Exhibits at the new Museum


As we plan for our future in our new home by McEuen Park, we want to create a museum that caters to make peoples learning styles. While our current exhibits feature a lot of photos, artifacts and reading card, our new home will feature some exciting new additions.

The new exhibits will be fully immersive and interactive explorations of the waters of North Idaho and how the system of lakes, rivers, and aquifer determines our livelihoods - past, present and future.

We are still raising funds to complete the work needed for our new lcoation. If you are interested in helping us move history forward, we still have several naming opportunities and more. Explore our donation options here.
