This museum has lots and lots to look at. I could spend all day there looking at things. I even found items I had inherited and thought they were something else and found out what they truly were. They even have old planes and cars. So much to see.

It seems to me that most of the material in the museum is related to WW2, but there is a lot to see. If you are a veteran. military buff or just doing a school project, you can see and read a ton of interesting stuff here.

The Warhawk Air Museum is a huge collection of memorabilia and artifacts from many wars and conflicts, not just planes and jets. Most are from veterans and their families who grew up in Idaho. The most poignant aspect of the museum are the personal histories that have been collected through the Veterans History Project. You can page through photos and... More

If you are interested or a real history buff-this is for you. You can see all aspects from all sides through the eyes of those who were in the history. There are letters, personal journals, etc. It is an awesome place to wander. We spent about 6 hours and didn't see the whole thing. The collection of planes changes and... More

The Warhawk museum is a great hidden gem in Nampa. If you can go on a day with an airshow, it is hard to beat. a very impressive number of extremely nice displays makes this an enjoyable stop. Lots of history for young and old to enjoy. Some of teh planes that have flown in for airshows are just plane... More

Interesting collection of aircraft and aircraft related items from WW-1 through VietNam. Though the collection is rather small when compaired to larger museums, (wouldn't take much more than 1 to 1-1/2 hours to view all) it is well rounded for what it covers in history,

What a place to visit to see, touch and learn of our war heroes and their equipment they used during past wars. From uniforms to airplanes. A must see.

You get up close and personal with some of the coolest aircraft, automobiles, clothing, and other things from our nation's past. You can definitely see their love for veterans. Great place! Bring your kids and your grandparents!

I really enjoyed the Warhawk Air Museum which surprised me because I generally don't enjoy this kind of thing. I only went because I knew my hubby would like it but ended up liking it myself. I enjoyed seeing the planes close up and the military clothing amongst other things. Definitely recommend.
