It was the "Greatest Generation". A time when Country before yourself was not rare but a common occurrence. The World was at War and young men and women fought hard and died for our freedom. The Nampa Warhawk Museum works very hard to preserve the stories of this generation that is fading fast each day. For families, this month seeing these relics of yesterday just got easier and cheaper. Documents, artifacts and actual planes involved in battles where lives were lost are preserved in time at the small museum in Canyon County.

April has been designated as Month Of The Military Child month, and the 40,000 SQ feet museum is offering FREE admission to children of families in the service. The offer extends to children up to the age of 18 and accompanied by supervising adults. The museum is open Monday to Saturday from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM and Sundays from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM. If you've never been out to see the place this really is an amazing space of reflection to honor the fighting men and women and families from the Treasure Valley who gave so much for the war effort in the 40's and beyond. Can't make it out? Not a problem the Warhawk Museum offers a few pretty amazing looks behind the scene with a bunch of hidden gems at the website like a 360-degree virtual tour and exhibit photos to scroll through.
