  • Even though I could not see the movie, I was able to tour the grounds and read the signs. I would have loved to see the inside of the hangars. Is the movie posted to the website?  more »
  • This is a must see! The patriotism of the airmen being honored is very evident. The displays are well done, the movie is great. So glad I went.  more »
  • We enjoyed this historic site so much. The Best Thing was talking to all the veterans and soldiers from Ft Benning who were visiting there. We watched an historic film and saw the many exhibits, too.  more »

  • Hangar rebuilt with mock-up of mustang. Hangar restored has restored training planes. Both have good poster boards of history of local airport training and success of Airmen. Did not see video. Interactive exhibits have already broken down. Needs new computers or software. No walking guides.
  • Interesting part of history. This is a great stop on your next family trip. Although this place free, it's also cool. They have two buildings. Children can choose to participate in their Junior ranger program, which is just an activity book-led scavenger hunt type of activity. There is also a 26-27 minute film about the airmen. It's a very interesting place.
  • On a recent drive from Atlanta to Houston, we stopped at the Tuskegee Airmen Historic Site. This was actually a perfect stop for a long road trip. We spent a little over an hour exploring the hangers and reading the historical information. Well worth the time and the drive.
  • Memorable experience learning more about these courageous men. Proud of their accomplishments in light of demeaning thoughts and actions. Sadly we still are fighting for equality decades later.
  • A must for the true aviation buff. Not a huge location but many interesting displays detailing the contributions of the Tuskegee Airmen. A few aircraft to view as well. Be sure to look around as a number of not obvious things to see like the cafe the base used where all could gather and mingle.
