The Warhawk Air Museum, in Nampa, ID., is just off I-84, west of Boise .. and it is definitely worth the visit. We suggest: 1. You should set aside at least 90 minutes to fully explore the museum, for it is much more than airplanes. 2. Visit all the airplanes (WW I vintage triplane; a wonderful WW II P-51 Mustang;... More

The museum is awesome. It has some very unusual items. Wish my dad could have visited it. My husband, me and out of town guests really enjoyed it. Will go back again as there is so much to see.

We took the grandkids here. They had a great time, not only are there airplanes, but there is a lot of memorabilia from all the different wars. It took us a little more then a couple of hours to go through here. If you stop and read everything, you will be here for several more hours. The whole family really... More

A must visit of you are a fan of the P-40 Warhawk or any other WWII fighter. Even though this is a small museum it is packed full of history. Take the time to read the letters and diaries from the men who fought the battles. Mr. Lou Bauman, the archivist for the museum will gladly spend as much time... More

I stopped by for an hour while in the area. The museum is not too big, but takes up two airplane hangars. There is a nice variety of small aircraft, as well as military uniforms. Other old military equipment items and model planes are on display as well. Admission is a little steep, but overall this museum is worth a... More

I read about this place in the Moon Handbook for Idaho so had to take a look. It was well-worth my visit. I spent about an hour here and could have easily been here longer. Besides the aircraft on display (including a P-40 Warhawk, P-51 Mustang, and on loan - a P-38 Lightning and an F4U Corsair) there was a... More

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.
