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

This is a great place to learn about the incredible men and women who have served our country. The displays are very well done and the aircraft are amazing. The volunteers are so very nice and knowledgeable. It is a pleasure to talk with them. The entrance fee is a little high, but we love this place! There are discounts.... More

If you like history, aviation and exhibits this has it all. Wonderful , thoughtful displays and all present aircraft are operational and mostly WWII vintage. Great views of the Smokies from the tarmac and by no means a small town type exhibit in a well conditioned building.

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!!
