Let the Northern Pacific Railroad Museum transport you back in time...
Let us take you back to when railroads were king of transportation. As you enter the museum, you step into the re-creation of an early working railroad station.
Bring a group to visit us or just stop in to see this great museum that preserves our rich railroad history.

The Northern Pacific Depot was constructed in 1901 with unique brick transported from China and concrete panels made from mine tailings. In 1986, due to the construction of I-90, the building was moved approximately 200 feet across the Coeur d'Alene River to its current location. The moving of the Depot is celebrated every year in May, the day before Mother's Day, with the Depot Day Classic Car Show.
The Northern Pacific Railroad Museum is open seasonally from April through the end of October.
The chateau style depot, which houses the museum and gift shop, has been a focal point of the grand architecture and historical heritage of Wallace. In 1976, while still in business as a railroad station, the depot was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
