The Northern Pacific Railroad Museum transports you back in time, when railroads were king of transportation. As you enter the museum, you step into the re-creation of an early working railroad station.
Exhibits tell of the rich history of railroading in the Coeur d’Alene Mining District and the Depot itself. Railroads have been at work in the Coeur d’Alene silver mining region since 1887. The last train to service the area was July 15th, 1992.
The Northern Pacific Depot Foundation has kept this historic building thriving as an amazing Railroad Museum and a focal point of Wallace. The board is a dedicated group of locals who work hard to see the museum thrive.
Wedding ceremonies may be held within the NP Depot or on the east lawn, both located in the center of Historic Wallace, Idaho.
