Looking for something other than roses or chocolates this Valentine's Day? The Old Idaho Penitentiary is offering a unique alternative to your typical V-Day dates. Stroll through the site, snuggle up with your Valentine and find the true meaning of "ball and chain," with special exhibits on love stories and love letters from the Idaho State Penitentiary.
Admission includes our Valentine's Day "Partners in Crime" scavenger hunt, featuring unique looks into the site's historic residents and what they loved - love of money, love of power, or commitment to those they loved.
Be sure to stop by the MARKED MEN exhibit on prison tattoos in its final weekend before closing to make way for our upcoming riots exhibit, and even score some temporary ink to remember us by.
TIMES AND TICKETS: February 14, 12:00-9:00 (last admission 8:15pm). Tickets are available at online or at the door a special 2 for $14 price! The site will be open for self-guided tours in all publicly accessible buildings. Dress warm and bring a flashlight!
