Our beautiful exhibit space, located in a historic railroad substation, features an exiting new exhibit, a partnership with the Coeur d'Alene Tribe. Aligned with a series of activities, events, and seminars, this program aims to bring the heritage, contemporary life, and bright future of the Coeur d'Alene and American Indian people to life. While you're at the institute, also check out the "African Journeys" exhibit, a collection of amazing artifacts that explore the customs and lifestyles of West Africa. Lastly, tour the "Peace Lives Here" exhibit, a multimedia art display highlighting Mahatma Gandhi's "Social Sins." Interactive activities for younger visitors to the institute are on-hand. Our space is available for use by other organizations or groups for meetings, conferences, receptions, and more; contact us to learn more.
Also, during a trip to the institute you can visit our media room, a cozy setting to watch one of the films from our library, including the award-winning documentary, "The Color of Conscience," which chronicles the rise and fall of the Aryan Nations in northern Idaho. The institute's winter hours are Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. We can be available at other times for special tours, too -- contact us via email or 208-292-2359 to learn more.
