Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site reviews
Hours are a bit strange, but this is a great museum! Definitely don't skip Hangar 2 - it is hard to figure out how to get back there, but I ended up liking Hangar 2 better.

This is such an amazing place!! The first hangar and the offices feels like a time capsule. Everything is so well preserved too and for the buildings that no longer stand there are metal poles describing where they were I also really enjoyed the documentaries in the second airplane hangar. Their Junior ranger program is also really great and they still give the patches to plus wings. I definitely recommend adding this to your travel list 🤠
This was a great place to visit to learn about the Tuskegee airmen! Having lived in the DC area and gone to both Smithsonian air and space museums (downtown and near IAD), we were not sure what to expect. While there were really only about half a dozen big artifacts in hanger 1, hanger 2 had great videos of interviews with various airmen (about a dozen clips) that really made the stop worthwhile. Hanger 1 had a P-51, and two trainer aircraft with a Link trainer box, a hands-on parachute folding display, and various uniforms (not to be tried on). Outside, you could wander around to look at buildings and wire-frame "ghost" buildings that no longer existed. The ranger greeting us was Lori. Her enthusiasm for her job was a great start. Be mindful of the hours / days of week that they are open. Only limited days. During our off season visit, their opening day for the week was Wednesday as indicated on a paper sign over the normal sign. We looked at the outside on Monday and went back on Thursday. I'd call first. But definitely worth the visit, free, and not far off the Interstate.
One of the best preserved historical military sites here in the United States. When you visit the airfield and its buildings, it feels like you’re stepping back in time. I visited on a Saturday and there was only two other families there. Every room I walked into I was the only one in there so I was able to really immerse myself in the settings, sounds, and smells. You can not only go into all the different offices in the hangars, but you can also climb the old control tower. Be careful from spring until fall as there are wasps which were being dealt with at the time. The staff are helpful and friendly. It’s free to visit but I would recommend leaving a donation. The site also has a nice little gift shop.
Really great museum about the African American experience during WWII. These men and women were patriots and weren't treated like it. They deserved better and our country failed them in various ways. But it's a positive experience showing how they overcame such obstacles and succeeded to help win the war as well as thier basic human rights after the war. Really great museum. Highly recommended. I drove 3 hours to get here from GA. Worth my time.
Another museum not open on Sunday 🥲. We were able to walk around the campus where they trained and peek into the buildings. We weren't able to see any of the planes they flew because the campus was closed. Still, it was worth going. You can feel the presence of greatness, American heroes!!! Because it was closed, I'm not sure if there's a cost associated.
