Overview

The Tennessee Museum of Aviation is an independently operated non-profit 501(c)(3) foundation dedicated to preserving aviation history, maintaining and exhibiting historical aircraft, advancing aviation education, and to honoring those who have made extraordinary contributions to aviation and aerospace. The Tennessee Museum of Aviation opened in Sevierville on 12/15/2001. The 50,000 sq ft facility is located beside the runway of the Gatlinburg-Pigeon Forge Airport (KGKT). Airworthy "Warbirds" are the foundation of our collection, making this a very unique location for visitors to enjoy unscheduled flight demonstrations. Docents are available to assist visitors on a leisurely walk through our 35,000 sq ft hangar, observing a variety of magnificently restored Warbirds and offering a glimpse at some future projects waiting for restoration. We are a "living" museum, therefore our exhibits and aircraft change frequently. Browse the museum's air-conditioned exhibit gallery. A 52 foot "Wave Wall" not only traces aviation history from before the Wright Brothers, it includes the timelines of Military Aviation History and Tennessee Aviation History.

This place is pretty neat with very friendly staff. I would wish for a different set up of planes and more hands on activities.

Thank for your review. The Tennessee Museum of Aviation takes pride in our aircraft collection. Although, we have had visitors comment on the layout and organization of our aircraft hangar ... it should be understood that a number of our aircraft are in fact "airworthy."...More

The aircrafts were pretty cool. Museum itself was a little dull to me but I'm not that interested in planes and the military. I would go again if someone else wanted to but not just for me.

Well done aviation museum. The museum is divided into two sections. One sections dedicated to aviation history and the second to the actual aircraft collection. Several WW2 fighter aircraft as well as some military vehicles. Very well maintained. Not so large that it is overpowering....More
