People want the recognition of a shared past, a sense of history, an understanding that this place is not interchangeable with countless other places. Our local history helps identify us personally and as a community. People come to the museum seeking meaning in this place they call home. What was this before I came here and how will that define what this place will be in the future? By collecting, preserving and interpreting the history of our region the museum provides the resources to understand and appreciate our rich cultural heritage, enriching our individual and community life. Please support the Museum of North Idaho.
