Nice. Open house on a Friday.

We wouldn't want working people to be able to go!

Any specific forms of ID required to be able to take the tour?

I need some info and can't find phone numbers. I would like to bring my 10 year old to the Navy open house, is there a age limit and he doesn't have photo ID. It is a 3 hour trip so I need to make sure he can get in before I come. Can anyone help?

I don't think children have to worry. You can call the base at 208-683-2321 extension 4505 for more information.
