America’s Largest War Museum Is Just Minutes From Boise
Idaho is a place where folks honor America and respect our veterans. Our Veteran's Administration Hospital is one of the best in the nation. There isn't a neighborhood in the Gem State where you won't see several American flag flying door to door. Idaho is also home to one of the most patriotic museums that honor America's veterans. It's one of the area's best-kept secrets until now.
Whether it's Veteran's Day or any day on the calendar, the Warhawk Museum, located just minutes from Boise in Nampa, has the most extensive war memorial collection in America, according to In Your State.
The Warhawk is big, over 40,000 square feet, and growing. The staff is currently engaged in a fundraiser to expand its footprint. You can read about their fundraising efforts here. They're closing in on their goal of $3.5 million.
The museum hosts the monthly Kilroy Coffee Klatch, where veterans gather to hear speakers while enjoying each other's company. In November, you can attend the Warhawk Winterfest; the museum is decorated with Christmas ornaments. You can read about their event here.
Every August, the skies over Nampa are filled with vintage World War II fighter planes. Veteran pilots and their families rally to participate in the Warbird Roundabout in August. Want to check out what patriotic memorabilia you'll see just minutes from Boise?
