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

This a great museum of aviation history. There are ongoing projects and also competed aircraft. There are also great items from previous wars with the stories of the people who were involved. If you like aviation and military history don't miss this.

Listening to one of the docents try to explain to children how Bernouli's principles work, was sad. She was completely wrong. The displays are not well prepared and don't touch anything, ever. When they have special events get ready to pay more money even if you are already a member of the museum. The military museum at the Boise Airport... More

Every visit here has been great. This last visit they had reduced some of the actual planes but I could spend hours looking at the displays & reading them. Very well done museum.

If you are in the vicinity, just go and take a look. It does not take much money or time, and the museum shows an interesting mix of aircraft and war memorabilia. I mean, which other air museum shows a bridal gown? -it is not a gimmick: it deserves to be there. So, take exit 38 on the I-84 -you... More

If you are a memorabilia and history freak then this place is definitely for you. If you want to teach your children (or yourself) more about history then come here. There is something for everyone. It is one of the most amazing museums I have ever been in. They have military history from WWI right up until the current conflicts.... More

Y'know, sometimes you choose to go somewhere when it is just too hot! That was the day we went to the Warhawk Air Museum. But the air conditioning that greeted us the minute we walked in the door was a great reward for braving the heat. This is an amazing museum. I learned so much from my visit. I didn't... More
