I thought the gallery was interesting and had some good information that I was not aware of. It is free and located in the Milwaukee airport near Gate C entrance. If you are an airplane fanatic, stop and enjoy the exhibits.

MKE airport has a hidden gem in the public main concourse (before TSA screening) where you can kill time and learn about aviation, Gen. Billy Mitchell, Capt. Sijan, and Capt Jim Lovell. Also, numerous model planes, photos, airport history, and it's FREE!

Nice history of the local area and contribution to flight. A little small, but not unexpected for a small local airport.

A nice exhibit with lots of models. Everything seems to tie back to Milwaukee in the exhibit. Will stop in again when I leave Milwaukee.
