We decided to stop on a Sunday afternoon and spent about an hour here. Ended up being free admission for the weekend but would have still been worth the entrance costs. Lots of Kentucky history along with aviation history.

Adults and kids alike enjoyed the museum. Our kids range in age from 5 to 12, and they all loved seeing the aircraft as well as climbing inside and operating the controls.

Small but very interesting. Everything is up close and personal. Children should really like it, as should parents.

The Aviation Museum of Kentucky is located at the little airport in Lexington, known as Bluegrass Field. It is at the corner of Versailles Road and Man-O-War Blvd. While small, it is full of artifacts with historic descriptions and has some very interesting planes.

The Aviation Museum of KY is an outstanding place to visit whether you are a KY resident or a Bluegrass visitor. Has an amazing variety of aircraft from the 1st plane to fly in KY to military jets and helicopters. Friendly guides and reasonable rates.

I have been to several air museums and they have all had one feature that set them apart from the others. In the case of the Aviation Museum of Kentucky, it is the wide range of aircraft displayed and the technical (mechanical) information presented. This...More
