Been in here a bunch of times. Always make at least 15 minutes extra on trips to visit. Really neat and informative. Awesome to see the history behind flying airplanes to space ships. Plus it is free!!

Great way to kill time while waiting for your flight before you enter the security zone. Although a history buff, I did not know a lot of what the museum told me.

I always try to stop in. This is a great little museum focusing on the MKE airport and I pick up some new fact with every visit. Well worth a stroll.

Everyone I fly through MKE I walk through this place. I love the fact it's a self guided tour as I can take my time to look at everything. Very interesting history to look at here. A lot if information as well.
