The Archives of Falconry occupies the Herrick Building overlooking a beautiful vista south of Boise, Idaho. We share a campus with The Peregrine Fund which was our organizational home until we became an independent non-profit 501(c)(3) in 2021. We still share a lot with The Peregrine Fund including tours and events.
The Archives is open for public visitation with regularly scheduled hours, Wednesday through Sunday, 11:00 am to 3:00 pm. To take a tour, please purchase tickets at the World Center for Birds of Prey Visitor Center.
Outside of our regular hours, staff may be available to accommodate private tours on a limited basis. To schedule a private tour, please call or email us at [email protected], at least one week in advance.
The Rendezvous is our largest annual event attracting falconers from around the world. It is an opportunity to gather and support the mission, celebrate falconry heritage, and honor those falconers who have passed. We hope you will join us in Boise from April 19-20, 2024.
The Wall of Remembrance honors those falconers no longer with us. The wall serves as a permanent record and location to honor the memory of a departed falconer among others who shared a passion for hawking.
Please join our mailing list and we will keep you posted on upcoming events.
The Sheikh Zayed Exhibit Wing was made possible by a generous gift from His Highness, Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed, in honor of his father, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, former President of the United Arab Emirates. The wing represents his father's great love of falconry and allows us to display memorabilia surrounding the long traditions of Bedu falconry and its contribution to all falconers' heritage.
The wing was initially dedicated at a celebration in 2006 and underwent a signifiant updating from 2021-2022. The renovated exhibit can now be seen during regular hours.
