This was one of the best aviation museums we have visited even though it was small. Only 12,000 square feet is used for exhibit space. It had the planes spaced far enough apart so you could get some good pictures. We've been to some that...More

Stopped by for a quick visit. This a smaller museum in two adjacent hangers. Although smaller, they have done a great job of collecting and exhibiting a variety of aircraft. Worth the stop

We stopped here on a recent visit to Lexington. My husband has been interested in aviation all of his life, so whenever we travel, and there is an aviation museum nearby, we are sure to visit it. This museum is in an impressive building, and...More

This Aviation Museum was not big, but it was packed with exhibits, especially real planes and helicopters. My fly-girl sister enjoyed it and I was never bored. They even preserved some old military aviation instructional films. A good, non- horsey, non-Bourbon attraction.

Great family visit, my daughters loved it.. Also the retired veterans who assisted and volunteered on the weekend "Steve" was just wonderful.. Will be coming back next year for sure!

We took our two grandsons to the museum. They definitely loved looking at the airplanes and being close to the airport. The museum needs more interactive exhibits to thoroughly engage children under the age of 12/

If you enjoy aviation then this is definitely worth a visit when in Lexington. Very friendly docents and great selection of aircraft and equipment. Two rooms of history, videos and simulators. A good variety too, not just military (although that is the main theme). A...More

This isn't necessarily a stand out, you can't miss it, kind of place but it's got some neat info & is definitely worth stopping by, just don't drive right past it. Not the best for super hot days as the hangers don't have air.
