Really enjoyed this museum and the staff was super nice. It wasn't the biggest air museum that I have been too, but had a lot of great displays.

Was a fun and easy trip to see vintage aircraft. It only takes an hour to walk through the museum and is it's very close to town.

Staff was exceptional and made us feel welcomed- the museum covered a lot of years and had some outstanding examples of planes, helicopters, etc. Enjoyed very much!

Well worth the visit especially if you can spend time with the owner founder Neil Melton. His history in cinema brings added interest to some of his exhibits. I am partial to his A-1 Skyraider which I flew in 1972.

This place is pretty neat with very friendly staff. I would wish for a different set up of planes and more hands on activities.

Visited there based upon AAA's TN Tourbook recommendation. While some of their aviation artifacts and planes are kind of cool, the museum is not well organized and many of the items are not well labeled. Some of the planes are nothing more than rotting, rusting...More

The aircrafts were pretty cool. Museum itself was a little dull to me but I'm not that interested in planes and the military. I would go again if someone else wanted to but not just for me.

Thank you for your review. The Tennessee Museum of Aviation takes pride in our aircraft collection. We have a number of "airworthy" Warbirds. Aviation and history enthusiasts enjoy spending time browsing our exhibit gallery and aircraft hangar. We look forward to having you visit again.
