Had a group of middle school kids here for a tour. Everyone enjoyed the presentations and checking out all of the exhibits. The staff was super knowledgeable and seemed excited to share. Definitely worth a visit when in the area.

I have been to many an aviation museum...this is a smaller one with interesting aircraft but is big on a knowledgeable and extremely friendly staff. Be sure to come when the weather is nice so you can enjoy the additional outside displays.

If you get to the airport early this is wonderful little aviation Museum to see. More than you might expect in a location tucked back in the airport property. Very nice guides, and some interesting displays and nice assortment of different planes.

We went as a group from the Army the 589th Engineers. It was amazing to see so many different planes, starting with the first that the Wright brothers invented. And the guide we had knew absolutely everything about every plane there. Quite fascinating!

I really enjoyed visiting this place. You get to meet with the curators and discuss Kentucky Aviation history, they will point out interesting items that are very unique to the area. I would highly recommend a visit
