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 a copy of the informational booklet, "Buried Secrets: Inmates of the Idaho State Penitentiary Cemetery".
Tickets are $15 each. Strongly recommended for ages 13+ due to graphic content. Parental discretion is advised.
