Experience a unique tour of the prison and the rarely seen 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 eternally laid to rest. Also, discover why more than half the cemetery is riddled with "Unknown" markers, 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 informational booklet "Buried Secrets: Inmates of the Idaho State Penitentiary Cemetery".
