  • This is the classic museum in which a small staff of dedicated volunteers give their all to put together something enthusiasts can enjoy. It looks like a converted hotel, with a couple of hangers...

  • Great variety of planes and history. Someone was there to answer any questions, very helpful. A helicopter and a place that the kids can climb in and pretend to fly. Great visit.
  • I love the Aviation Museum of Kentucky, my first time visiting. I loved the hot air balloon display and all air the airplanes and aviation history. Great visit and I’ll definitely be back to explore and learn some more. Highly recommend. ❤️
