Sight, the workhorse of the five senses, puts in too many hours keeping man from falling in manholes. Give the most overworked sense a vacation with today's Groupon: for $3, you get a family admission pass to the Museum of North Idaho in Coeur d’Alene (a $7 value). This pass includes admission for two adults and any children under 16 years old. The museum is open seasonally from April 1 to October 31 (the expiration date of this Groupon) from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.
Exhibits at the Museum of North Idaho explore the historical significance of the Coeur d'Alene region, touching on topics including logging, farming, and the Playland Pier Amusement Park. The museum's 2010 feature exhibit showcases the history of the settlement of the area by Scandinavians, as well as their contributions to sawmills, community development, and the region’s abundant forests of assemble-it-yourself furniture. See a replica of a 1932 Forest Service lookout or spelunk deeper into the cavernous history of Coeur d'Alene during a 20-minute video highlighting the history of the area. An exhibit on the Coeur d’Alene tribe highlights how the Shoshone Native Americans taught the Coeur d'Alenes to ride horseback in 1760 as a way of wooing suitors at the local shopping mall.
Today's Groupon also gets museum maniacs access to the nearby Fort Sherman Museum, which includes the Fort Sherman Chapel—the oldest church, school, library, and meeting hall in the region, built in 1880 just before President Rutherford B. Hayes’s third motorcycle jump. Learn the rich history of the region while fostering family togetherness with a visit to the Museum of North Idaho.
Any additional adults and/or children over 16 are $3 each.
