Old Idaho Penitentiary
Old Idaho Penitentiary Cemetery Tours – March 23-29, 2019. Experience a unique tour of the prison and its rarely seen inmate cemetery. Unlock the mysteries of the dead with us as guides explore where inmates died, what their final moments were like, and where they are laid to rest. Discover why more than half the cemetery is riddled with “Unknown” markers (or often no markers at all) and why some names cannot be found in any prison register. Your Cemetery Tour ticket also entitles you to a self-guided tour of the prison the day of your visit and the information booklet, “Buried Secrets: Inmates of the Idaho State Penitentiary Cemetery.” Cemetery Tour tickets include admission to the Old Idaho Penitentiary site and exhibits.

The Old Idaho Penitentiary is open extended spring break hours March 23-29, 2019 (12:00pm to 7:00pm daily, last admission 6:00pm).

Ticket sales begin Monday, February 18 at 12:00am. Cemetery Tours are offered at 3:00, 4:00, 5:00 and 6:00 each day from March 23-29. Tours are limited to 30 people each – reserve your spot by pre-purchasing them on our website! (link coming soon)
