The Tennessee Museum of Aviation opened in Sevierville on 12/15/2001. The 50,000 sq ft facility is located beside the runway of the Gatlinburg-Pigeon Forge Airport (KGKT). Airworthy "Warbirds" are the foundation of our collection, making this a very unique location for visitors to enjoy unscheduled flight demonstrations. Docents are available to assist visitors on a leisurely walk through our 35,000 sq ft hangar, observing a variety of magnificently restored Warbirds and offering a glimpse at some future projects waiting for restoration. We are a "living" museum, therefore our exhibits and aircraft change frequently. Browse the museum's air-conditioned exhibit gallery. A 52 foot "Wave Wall" not only traces aviation history from before the Wright Brothers, it includes the timelines of Military Aviation History and Tennessee Aviation History. « less

It's a small museum but very worth your time. The staff has always been very friendly and helpful. They have a very nice gift shop that is reasonably priced.

Very nice small museum which only has about 18 (or so) aircraft but they were well maintained and displayed well. One of the volunteers there was knowledgeable and willing to explain about the aircraft and how they worked. The lobby had a nice selection of books, photographs, and models to build.

Lots of good history on display as well as an entire hangar with planes--some actually can be enjoyed "hands-on." Reasonable admission charge!!

I figured there would have been more planes. There were no really old planes or really new planes; just average.

My husband and boys are big aircraft fans. I found a coupon for $2 off per person which helped the overall cost. It was $37 for our family of four with coupon- 2 adults, 2 kids to get in. The first area has glass displays of photographs, uniforms, flight equipment, etc to look through - very nice collection - some... More

This aviation museum is quite interesting. Prior to entering the hanger, there are many exhibits with artifacts from all the wars starting with WWI. There are also exhibits showing wright flyer models. There is a variety of planes including migs, helicopters, P-47's, halftracks, and a variety of aircraft engines

With this attraction being a bit off the beaten path, I wasn't expecting to find it so well-done. Was I ever wrong. There are wonderful well-done exhibits that are well-cared for and maintained. We were guided through by a very knowledgeable member of the staff who was able to answer all questions posed to him. I'm not sure if it... More
