We've been wanting to visit The Mighty 8th Air Force Museum since I first learned of my father's WWII experiences in 2001. What a fantastic resource! Not only is the Museum a visual, auditory, and tactile presentation, but contains a staffed and expansive resource center/library for investigating or providing further information about members of the 8th Air Force (individuals, groups,...

World War 2 and more to learn about. It will take you some time to go through it. but if you need to rest from your trip and give the kids something to do. this is the place. you will enjoy it. Right off of I-95

One of the best attractions in Savannah area -- very detailed exhibits which are very understandable, and do not require the tour, although that was excellent as well. Basically explains a supremely important piece of American History and World War II -- which for some reason, I never learned in school! We only had 4 hours there, but could have... More

Our second trip but find the museum always growing and improving. There is a great balance of descriptive/educational prose and real artifacts plus several films and a mission experience simulating the flak of combat missions. Outdoor memorial gardens commemorate individuals and the flight crews with the distinctive names of their planes. The Eighth Air Force was the force assigned to... More

Finally had a chance to visit this 8th A.F. museum. As a pilot, and a member of our local museum, I was very impressed by the quality of the museum, but for me, a bit disappointed with aircraft static displays. The video, the diorama, etc were very top notch. This is not a museum for hands on experiences, so it... More

My mother was a woman veteran in WWII, and I was delighted there was an exhibit for women serving as pilots (WASPs), as well as research material for a project I'm working on. Lovely local veterans welcomed me at the door. Go!

Your kids will learn more at the Mighty Eighth than they will in a month in a classroom. First Class all the way.

My husband and I have often passed this museum as we traveled on I95 through Georgia. This time we decided to stop for a "short" visit just to see what this place was. It was nearly two hours later when we walked out. This is a treasure trove of historical information, artifacts and even original aircraft used by the Mighty... More

My wife and I stopped by last week and spent the afternoon there. We really enjoyed the museum. The displays were very well made and very informative. Being a Vietnam Air Force Vet, I could really appreciate what these men and women did for this country and the hardships they endured. I think that anyone passing thru the area should... More

I came to this place as a teenager and then again in 2010. My most recent experience was when my wife said she wanted to go. We made it a family day trip with my parents who also came into town. The cost was a little higher than I was expecting but I'm sure the money goes to this amazing... More
