The museum is small but has a lot of information about early flying in the Atlanta area. It sits on a grass airfield that is still used. Also, there is a wonderful restaurant, Barnstormer's, where customers can eat and watch small planes fly in and out.

Have visited this place a couple of times. Enjoy the old planes and information. Interesting visit for all ages. Then lunch at the Barnstormers grill is a must.

We visited the museum recently while eating in the restaurant. There are a couple of vintage planes and clothing too. As well as photos. Apparently several movies have been filmed here. Saw pics of Travolta and Cruise as well as others I didn't recognize. My little great-nephew enjoyed the planes!

We enjoy flying into the small Williamson Airport and visiting the original Hartsfield Airport location and learning some of the history at the museum. Several times a year various events are held here. Vintage Days is a favorite of ours in honor of our Vets.

This small airport is located just west of Williamson Ga. It has a small museum with older planes and a restaurant that has pretty good food. On Sunday's they offer a buffet.
