The current status of the Pappy Boyington Veterans Museum.

  • We are exploring different options and locations. All artifacts are safely stored and awaiting proper display. We are also preserving new donations on a case-by-case basis.

  • We are awaiting support from civic organizations, private foundations and the general public who want to preserve the history of our veterans and their service to our country.

  • Concurrently, we are creating an online digital history presence for the museum.

  • Your help is needed to encourage the Kootenai County Commissioners to support the veterans museum.

  • We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit so a donation of land, buildings, airplanes or cars can be deducted. (check with your accountant).

  • We could possibly be interested in a building not owned by the museum if it had a long term lease. 

  • Museums DON'T make money and are very lucky to even break even…they are created by and for people wanting to preserve the history of our great nation.

  • We need YOUR support…please donate.  Donate
