  • What other airport offers you a free museum to peruse while you wait for your flight? The history of the airport, of General Billy Mitchell, and of Milwaukee's beloved Midwest Express, all in one room, all for free.
  • Surprisingly nice little museum. Great info and a great way to kill time if necessary.
  • When I fly I usually pause here for several quieter moments and review MKE's history--interesting!
  • If you have time you have to visit this, even if you only have 5 minutes you have to pop in, excellent displays and history more Airports should do this.
  • Great history timelines and fantastically accurate models.

Where to stay in Milwaukee

Staying in the city center puts you right in the heart of the activity, and means you can take advantage of all the things to do in Milwaukee’s walkable downtown area. Options here include big chain hotels as well as quirky inns. Party animals should sacrifice some sleep to stay close to Milwaukee’s lively bar scene, centered around Water Street. Those who want a little more rest should consider a scenic resort in the greater Milwaukee area; many of these are within easy driving distance of the main attractions.
