What a wonderful visit we had at the museum!!! While the hangars don't look like anything special from the outside, they hide treasures of WWII!!!! We highly recommend this museum!

Really well-done historic site about a sometimes overlooked part of US history. Excellent museum in two converted hangers. Excellent short film. Not far from I-85 and well worth a visit.

Really cool to step back in history and see the exhibits and artifacts. We got there close to closing time though because the GPS directions were way off--be careful of this!

We visited Tuskegee on a quiet Friday. There weren't many visitors while we were there, so we had time to soak up all of the exhibits. This park is very well done - it has several interactive videos and beautifully done exhibits. There is a...More
