Post-9/11 and Global War on Terror Expansion and Renovation

It’s a new era for the Warhawk Air Museum, and we want YOU to be a part of it!

For 33 years the Warhawk Air Museum has focused on its mission to “educate visitors about the cost of freedom and honor those who paid its price”.

The museum has welcomed over half a million visitors since it opened in 1989. It is a sacred place to preserve, honor, and educate our community about our veterans’ histories, but more importantly, it is a place of sharing and healing.

The Global War on Terror was America’s longest war. We are honored to announce our plans to expand the museum and recognize those Veterans. This 37,000 square foot expansion and state-of-the-art renovation will be designed to not only preserve and honor the history of the Global War on Terror, but also to serve as a gathering place for the military community and civilian visitors to heal, celebrate, honor, and learn.

The cost of the new wing is $3.5 million. We have raised over $2.8 million to date. We are asking you to become a partner with the Warhawk Air Museum to preserve, honor and safeguard America’s military history.

Please join us in hitting the afterburner to close the funding gap.

Donor Update:

The Warhawk Air Museum is proud to announce the J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Family Foundation has donated $350,000 in support of our Capital Campaign to build the new Post 9/11 – Global War on Terror wing. This new wing and renovation will add 32,000 sq. ft. to the museum campus and cost $3.5 million. This new wing will link generations and acknowledge the service of our GWOT Veterans as the Museum continues to preserve, honor, and teach the veterans’ history and service to our nation. “The Warhawk Air Museum is a great asset to the state of Idaho and to Mission43,” said Dan Nelson, Program Officer for the J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Family Foundation. “We support the leadership potential of veterans and military spouses who have chosen to live in Idaho after their military service, and this expansion will offer incredible opportunities to our military and civilian communities.”

The Warhawk Air Museum provides a place, in Idaho, for personal collections and stories to be displayed to the public. With this expansion, we will become a home for military gatherings and expanded student field trips. The Global War on Terror (GWOT) Veterans and their families will join the hallowed grounds of the Warhawk Air Museum under the mission and promise to teach the world about the cost of freedom and honor those who paid the price. We are very grateful to the J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Family Foundation for their gift and humbled by their support and enthusiasm as the museum moves into the future.

Our Goal $3,500,000 $2,877,311.35
