WELCOME TO THE
TENNESSEE MUSEUM OF AVIATION
The Tennessee Museum of Aviation opened in Sevierville on December 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. Bring your family to reminisce with veterans willing to share their memories with the next generation. This hidden treasure, of the Smoky Mountains, is certainly worth a visit for any aviation enthusiast.
Historic aircraft frequently visit the museum. Several touring aircraft provide visitors with walk-through tours as well as a way to ride along on a historic flight.
As soon as our "Special Events" are confirmed, dates and information will be posted on our web-site OR sign-up for our quarterly NEWSLETTER delivered via e-mail.
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. Explore a touching Faith and Courage exhibit, paying tribute to U.S. Military Chaplins from World War II through the present.The exhibit gallery includes the General Jimmy Doolittle Medal of Honor, along with thousands of historic artifacts, and Tennessee's Aviation Hall of Fame.
The FLYING SPIRIT GIFT GALLERY is packed with gifts and souvenirs for the entire family. You'll find a huge selection of aviation books; adult and children's flight jackets; collectable die-cast models; aviation art; a large assortment of patches and pins; aviation t-shirts of all sizes; and a unique variety of original vintage aircraft parts. This is probably the largest and most remarkable selection of aviation gifts in the Southeast. Several of our more popular gift items can be purchased on-line through our shopping cart.
