Review for Museum Of North Idaho Inc, Coeur D Alene, ID, USA
Recently I found out that the reason MNI closes between Nov and Mar is because there is no heat in the exhibit hall. Thankfully, a capital campaign has began and will provide the Coeur d'Alene Region with a state-of-the-art museum.
The Museum of North Idaho (MNI) has been keeping history alive for 51 years. Their mission is to collect, preserve, and interpret the history of the Coeur d’Alene Region to foster appreciation of the area’s heritage. MNI inspires a dynamic connection to our Region’s unique heritage through exhibiting and sharing history with our community and visitors. MNI offers a public space where community members can gather and interact with our area’s history. Every 2nd Friday, MNI is open to the public as part of ArtWalk. MNI provides resources to research and create a broader understanding of the rich cultural heritage of our past. After 40 years in the same building, they are ready to expand. The Museum experience will continue to inspire learning and partner with area schools, but through a larger, more interactive, and technologically advanced space.
As our community grows, MNI is preparing to grow with it. Preserving our small town heritage is imperative so that Coeur d’Alene’s community identity is not lost as a result of the growing population.
