I have been to several air museums from Dayton, Ohio to the Smithsonian, yet for a very small city and State this offers some great insight. No other museum has the volume of recorded history stories from those who flew the planes, fought the battles and packed the gear like this place. There is no better bang for the buck... More

Our small towns have sent their men and women to serve and fight for this country every time it was needed. The letters, machines, uniforms and other bits of history show the depth of of love and sacrifice the average people have shown for over a hundred years. Just a great suprise ant the amount and quality of the things... More

An extensive collection of military memorabilia. Thought-provoking, informative displays really put you in the time and place. Hard to see everything during one visit. I was especially touched by the many notebooks containing personal histories and family letters. The entrance fee is well worth it.

If you get a chance to visit with the volunteers, they have some wonderful stories. I especially liked reading pamphlets from the era. The planes are fun to see but the really interesting artifacts are along the sides of the hangar. For example, there is a wedding dress made from parachute silk.

Could have stayed there for hours! So much to see and read. Took my two and five-year-old. Five-year-old loved the airplanes. Probably better for older children but wanted to give my five-year-old something to think about. Lots of "Do not touch" though. Highly recommend on a rainy day!

There was no way I could see and read the many displays at the Warhawk. The gentleman who was a volunteer docent there was so friendly and knowledgeable about the displays and about the era. Of course the planes and equipment are fascinating but I really love all the soldier histories and photos, telling the personal experiences. Need to go... More

In Idaho’s third most populated city resides an impressive time capsule of Americana. Whereas, most Air Museums have a large amount of Aircraft displayed, Nampa Idaho’s “Warhawk Air Museum” (WAM), make’s do with a smaller number of Aircraft. Yet, the curators produced an interesting and informative historical representation. A first for me, is seeing cars displayed equally with the Aircraft.... More
