A must see for anyone interested in aviation, history or business. The story behind the Beechcraft Corp. is fascinating. Multiple aircraft on display, including the Staggerwing biplane and the amazing Starship.

This is not the Smithsonian, but a fun tour. The aircraft are in beautiful condition. The BHM also serves as a venue for events, such as receptions, banquets, and the like.

This is a wonderful aviation museum in a beautiful setting. The museum sponsors and staff have done an excellent job of preserving and presenting a large number of historically significant aircraft. The park like grounds are perfect for a family picnic. Plan for a long visit.

This museum is very clean and well laid out. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The planes are very well presented with good information. We enjoyed the history of the Beech family. This is a very interesting museum for everybody. Plane enthusiasts should expect to spend several hours here. You won't be disappointed!

Wonderful setting on Tullahoma airport grounds- arrive by air or car! Modern facilities (air-conditioned) on well-kept grounds. Informative staff greets you and instructs you towards your self-guided tour- you could spend an hour or a day! It's all about Beechcraft... the people who made them and the planes. The aircraft are in amazing states of preservation. Enjoyable for all ages!

We had a great time with my family at this museum. We liked the history, we like to the planes, and we like looking at civil air patrol items as well. While we were here there was a civil air patrol glider school going on at the airport next to the museum. We had the opportunity to see gliders and... More

Great history and education on the Beech family and the many aircraft. You get an upclose hands on view of some of the original Beechcraft airplanes. Also outside we got to see the skydivers right in the field next to the museum.

I've always loved airplanes, but I was unaware until recently that this museum was less than 2 hours from my home. Many of the aircraft on display are historically important, not just to the Beechcraft brand, but to general aviation as a whole. Some of the planes could have used more information, and some way to see better into the... More

This museum is a pleasant surprise -- top notch and sort of "out in the middle of nowhere." Very good for aviation enthusiasts and gearheads in general. In fact, I was inspired by the #31 painted on airplane in the site pictures. I took a photo and duplicated the style on the 1931 Ford Model A hot rod I built!
