Must see for anyone visiting the Treasure Valley of Idaho - especially if you are interested in Aviation or anything to do with WWII. Admission cost is reasonable and the museum has grown over the years. Good variety of aircraft and displays of all types. Also some hands on activities for the under 10 age group. Plan on spending 2-3... More

This place has an enormous collection of artifacts, planes, and cars from the 40's. Plan on taking some time. there are books and personal artifacts from our soldiers, even medals etc. It was just fascinating.

Finally made it out to this museum and I will say we were so amazed at the size and quality of the many displays. My Dad was of the Greatest Generation and he always downplayed his time in service during the War. He was a Navigator back in the day when that was a job done by humans, not computers.... More

If you are a history buff this is for you! The amount of personal items and letters really help provide an understanding of the sacrifice our military and their families made. Much larger items are on display and it is surprising what events were marked in history by local people. If your young child loves airplanes and appropriate war-time stories,... More

It's very clean ... Doesn't smell like a museum. They have it in an a large building to house the airplanes, so it is very airy. They have some INCREDIBLE things ... A wedding dress that was made from a parachute a soldier brought back from the war. They have binders of letters soldiers wrote home. They really give you... More

First, a note: I am rating this strictly on a "child friendly and interesting" scale. We went here for my 5 year old son who loves looking at all the old planes and vehicles. I am, admittedly, not a history buff though reading some of the old pamphlets and war info was interesting. We stumbled upon the Tillamook Air Museum... More

This museum is much, much more than historical planes. Take time to read the many interesting folders of information. By coincidence whilst talking with my accompanying friend, he told about a relative who was captured on Wake Island, then during our visit was able to read about the capture of Wake Island. The visit can very easily and comfortably take... More

One of the better air museums in the area. Nice to see fully restored and flying aircraft. One of my grandsons favorite places

This is a really cool place to visit if you enjoy WWII history and/or airplanes. They have a large collection of planes and if you visit on the right day, they take some out and fly them.

We visited this incredible museum while in Boise for my husband's business trip. Our kids are homeschooled, which allowed us to travel with him this time. We decided to surprise our two kids, especially our son, who is obsessed with all things aeronautic. IT WAS AMAZING! This was not your typical museum, with some big displays with a few plaques...
