Stopped here because my son and I had recently watched the movie about the airmen. They have two hangars of exhibits about the airmen. Plus, a short documentary which is fantastic. Well worth a visit if you are a history buff.

A wonderful visit to see where African American men learned to become the elite Tuskegee aviators and later heroes during WWII. Make sure to allocate sufficient time to see the hangers and grounds as well as the museum of this beautiful historic site.

This is a well preserved and presented historic site. These men over came many obstacles to become an eltie flying squadron. The only draw back to this site was there were long distances to walk from the parking lot to the various buildings. The presentation/films...More
