The Warhawk Air Museum in Nampa started because founder John Paul is passionate about historic airplanes, and so is his wife, Sue. So, they would work on these incredible planes in their home. After moving to Idaho, John began restoring a WWII plane at the Caldwell Airport and was surprised to have an interested audience. Visitors started leaving boxes with WWII memorabilia, and John and Sue knew they needed to preserve this history. That’s when they launched the Warhawk Air Museum.

Today, the Warhawk Air Museum is a historical preservation center that dignifies the service of veterans in their pursuit of freedom and liberty. They’ve captured stories of thousands of people from every branch of the military, including the Coast Guard, who have served their country from World War I forward. This includes uniform, beautiful displays and the historical airplanes that inspired the creation of the museum almost 30 years ago.

Pat Kilroy, executive director of the Warhawk Air Museum, says education is an important focus for the museum, and in addition to 33,000 visitors last year, they hosted 5,300 school kids. They’re also a touch point for veterans and host Idaho’s largest monthly gathering every month.
