This is a nice well done museum of the terminal and other interesting artifacts. Well worth spending some time in while waiting for your plane. Better yet arrive a little early to make sure to check it out.

I thought the gallery was interesting and had some good information that I was not aware of. It is free and located in the Milwaukee airport near Gate C entrance. If you are an airplane fanatic, stop and enjoy the exhibits.
