“Wonderful Gem of a Museum”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

What an unexpected gem. We finally stopped aftert we passed it hundreds of times driving south on 95. The exhibits are expertly displayed and explained. You feel as if you are a part of history. It is the unsanitized version of WWII that you don't really hear about.

“Great way to spend Memorial Day”
Reviewed May 27, 2013 via mobile

Well worth the cost of admission. Spent a couple of hrs. Here on Memorial day. Plenty to see and he are about not only the Mighty 8the but also WWIN and WWII overall. Touches well on Nazi Germany, how the wars evolved, those who helped and hid the allies and has a section on each women in service and the Tuskegee airmen. Offers senior, AAA and several other discounts.

“Wonderful Tribute to WWII”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

World class museum right off of 95. Do yourself a big favor tho and make sure you eat prior to getting to the museum. The on-site restaurant is the antithesis of good service.

“Super avaition museum”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Beautiful museum with outstanding exhibits. Not very many places have a restored B-17 and theirs is in excellent shape. Not only is a beautiful museum but it is dedicated to the men of the Eighth Air Force which was founded in Savannah in 1942. The memorial gardens are a wonderful place to spend a little time. Quite a few of the volunteers served with the Eighth in WWII and have wonderful stories to share. A can't miss stop for aviation buffs.
