  • Mitchell Flight Gallery Vokimiche will be in the international airport, visitors are free to visit. In the small flight gallery, there are many different models of aircraft and different airlines, the most notable of which is suspended in the ceiling of the ship model.

  • Small museum, but a lot of great content! It covers general aviation history through a Milwaukee lens. Plenty of scale models. Great highlights covering Billy Mitchell, Richard Bong, and James Lovell.
  • 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!
  • Nice little museum!

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.
