Several WWII warbirds and a F-104 (how many of those have you seen). Numerous artifacts and displays of personal memorabilia of locals. Several cars of the era, Jeeps etc. (I'm a car museum guy so I like this a lot). Many dioramas of the period, cloths, books, and equipment.

This was a very interesting place for the history buff. Air memorabilia from WW1 onward. You could easily spend hrs if you are interested. We stopped with about an hour to look before they closed. I would have enjoyed a little more time. The vietnam displays were especially touching for me.

What a tremendous collection of WWI, WW2, Korea, and S.E. Asia history. You will enjoy all the displays and personal history displays of yesterday's hero's. They have several aircraft on display, including operational P-40's and a P-51. Don't miss this opportunity.

Super cool museum and well worth the stop. You can spend hours looking at all the great stuff. They have a bunch of old airplanes including the P-40 that wars in huge movie Pearl Harbor. It still operates and I know they will fly it when they have the air show in Nampa.

After 9 years in town we decided it was about time to visit the local air museum. It was a treat. The exhibits are exceptionally well lit and documented. There is a little bit of everything on display, including some unique aircraft, autos, and equipment. To do it justice plan on spending a couple hours wandering around and actually reading... More

The warhawk museum is a must on your visit to Nampa. It really takes you back in time. Bring your glasses if you need them , so you can read the stories of all the servicemen honored.

If I were a vet wanting to relive my WW2 youth I am sure I would be delighted in the beautifully restored aircraft. However i took my eight and nine year old daughters for something to do over the Xmas break. This is very much an old school museum. Everything is "do not touch" apart from books and my kids... More

My husband and I were on an excursion thru western Idaho and "happened" upon this amazing museum. The focus is on WWII and covers every aspect of this war. As you go through this museum you feel the personal committment many have made to tell the stories and share the history. They have personal biographies in binders for many of... More

The air museum is one of Nampa's most progressive and outstanding facilaties for both young people and veterans. Thru their organization the citizens of Nampa not only are granted educational history of past military action but we are blessed with several air exibitions each year that allow close up observation of historical aircraft along with many fly-by's. It's a must... More
