  • This was one of the few places we got into because the lines were so long elsewhere. They really make you feel like you are a part of the mission. You get to sit in on what it would have been like to....  more »
  • Been here 3 times over a period of 15 years or so. The new pavillion is really great and took a lot of work. Wonderful for history, WW II, and aviation buffs.  more »

  • As a teacher and historian who has visited a lot of museums, this is a must see. The exhibit are excellent. Staff were very friendly. We were lucky enough to be there to talk with a docent who was a pilot in a b17 and he had quite a story to tell. The whole space has been built and designed with care. It really paints a picture of the experience. It is a fitting monument to the men who fought in the air over Europe. This is worth driving out of your way for.
  • Fabulous! Worth every penny. If you get an offer from a docent named Randy to listen to his lecture/talk during your visit SAY YES! What a great storyteller! I enjoyed the sections on POWs and the WASP. Both were very informative.
  • Tribute to all the people who served in the 8th Army Air Force. They do a great job of highlighting the various types of missions done by this organization. In addition, they also highlight the two paths an airman might take after they were downed. The helpers who sheltered them or their experiences in a POW camp. Very well done.Research library upstairs is available and should be visited if you have a relative that served.Pub on the main floor serves the hungry and there gift shop is by no means run of the mill. Memorial gardens gets you out to Chapel too.Enjoy and learn
  • This was a fantastic experience, beautiful displays, great staff. The presenters in the live presentations were interacting with their audience in a professional, informative, and fun ways. Hands on displays, great in-depth information, if you choose to learn things in depth. Quick over views and displays for a less detailed learning experience. If you have an interest in Air Force history and airplanes, this is a "Do Not Miss!" stop in Georgia!
  • My wife’s family and I toured this museum yesterday & it’s a must stop for locals & tourists. The gentlemen that gave us a tour & showed us the videos was very knowledgeable and informative. This museum has something for all ages and pays tribute to those who have served and paid the ultimate price for our freedom. It was an honor to learn their story and the role the 8th Air Force played in us winning the war.
