MKE airport has a hidden gem in the public main concourse (before TSA screening) where you can kill time and learn about aviation, Gen. Billy Mitchell, Capt. Sijan, and Capt Jim Lovell. Also, numerous model planes, photos, airport history, and it's FREE!

Nice history of the local area and contribution to flight. A little small, but not unexpected for a small local airport.

A nice exhibit with lots of models. Everything seems to tie back to Milwaukee in the exhibit. Will stop in again when I leave Milwaukee.

Free! small museum upstairs in the airport. Not so "cutting-edge" or interactive: models, uniforms, letters and other artifacts. Covers the history of air traffic, flight, local pilots and the airport. Old school, but the price is right. We often go with my 5-year old to...More
