First rate museum in all ways! Staff was very knowledgeable, informative and helpful. The buildings are beautifully designed and maintained. The aircraft collection is varied and comprehensive and impeccably restored. Plan to spend several hours, especially if you like to read all the placards.

Saw the museum on Tennessee Crossroads and decided to visit. Admission is affordable and reasonable. I learned much, but for a non-pilot it seemed aircraft overload. But it was interesting and informative and I would certainly go back.

If you want to see aircraft in history this is the right place. They have like 30 aircraft or more, don't expect to see Airbus big Boeings, but they have really beautiful aircraft. I recommend this place if you like aviation.

This is a kid-friendly museum. I would say 5-years or older so they would see the "cool" planes. There are no interactive displays, at least not when we were there last.
