Everyone there was kind and the guide was very knowledgeable! The children enjoyed sitting and pretending they were pilots in the one plane and helicopter that they were permitted to be in. Highly recommended and a great homeschool field trip experience!

We really enjoyed our visit! There were really informed and engaged tour guides who could answer questions and even helped the kids get in and out of some of the helicopters and planes! I'd highly recommend it!

Interesting collection of historical planes, including a good display about the Doolittle Raid. There's even a replica of the first plane built and flown in Kentucky.

Would recommend but only with a Groupon. It is a small museum and their actual prices without the Groupon are too high. That said the gentleman who was working there the day we went was highly knowledgeable and very helpful and friendly.

Best for kids over 5 years old probably; Our grandson is younger than that and enjoyed it but couldn't really focus on the individual exhibits or history Grandpa loved it and will go back!

From Our Editors

Located at Blue Grass Airport, the Aviation Museum of Kentucky pays tribute to the Commonwealth’s rich history of aviation with its impressive squadron of rare and restored aircraft, aviation memorabilia, interactive educational displays, and active aviation restoration shop. Inside the museum, a flock of steel birds suspended on wires hangs from the hangar’s expansive ceiling. A replica of Matthew Sellers’ 1908 quadraplane—the first aircraft built and flown in Kentucky—headlines the museum collection, extending its majestic wings to shake the hands of awestruck visitors. Other exceptional designs include a Skyhawk once flown by the Navy’s Blue Angels, an F-14 Tomcat jet-fighter as seen in the film Top Gun, and a high-bypass turbofan used to propel modern jumbo jets.

Guided tours and interactive exhibits delve into the science and history of flight, while the Kentucky Aviation Hall of Fame honors the lives of those who have soared among the clouds, whether in planes or wrapped around the waist of Michael Jordan. Young ones, meanwhile, can learn more about the variety of aviation careers and set their sights on following the tailwinds of famous pilots and designers.
