Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

“thank you for your service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

This is a great place to learn about the incredible men and women who have served our country. The displays are very well done and the aircraft are amazing. The volunteers are so very nice and knowledgeable. It is a pleasure to talk with them.
The entrance fee is a little high, but we love this place! There are discounts.
Currently they are displaying Jimmy Doolittle's Medal of Honor. Now THAT'S HISTORY!

“Great exhibts !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014

If you like history, aviation and exhibits this has it all.
Wonderful , thoughtful displays and all present aircraft are operational and mostly WWII vintage.
Great views of the Smokies from the tarmac and by no means a small town type exhibit in a well conditioned building.
