About us:

Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site  established to honor the actions of African American airmen during World War II, Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site contains a visitor center, a hangar and a scenic overlook. The visitor center, containing exhibits and videos related to these fearless men, offers a compelling image of their triumphs and difficulties during this war. During the weekend, special guided tours of the hangar museum can be arranged by prior appointment. This historic site is located at Moton Field Municipal Airport just north of Tuskegee, which sits about 40 east of Montgomery.

The museum, housed within a converted airplane hangar at Moton Field where the Airmen once trained, is a long overdo permanent tribute to the heroic group of airmen who flew more than 15,000 combat trips throughout Europe, the Mediterranean and North Africa during World War II – all while fighting discrimination on the homefront in the Jim Crow South.

Well worth a visit. This place was fantastic! My family and I enjoyed it. You can see so much history here. The set up was so nice, you able to see and touch so many things from so long ago.

A marvelous museum honoring some truly exceptional and courageous men. What they endured from their own military is unthinkable. What they did for their country is extraordinary. This museum is beautiful, and the stories told within it's walls are indeed a great lesson in both history and personal integrity. The men and women of the Tuskegee Airmen deserve a place of honor in our hearts.

What can I say? A piece of American history everyone should experience! The staff is knowledgeable and friendly, and the displays, exhibits, and are well thought out and engaging. It was moving to know that we were standing in the same places that men who had sacrificed so much, and made such a fundamental difference in the direction of our nation. It is humbling to think that they were willing to engage in such sacrifice despite the unjust treatment and discrimination they endured by the very people they were willing to sacrifice themselves for. Quality of character that is all but wanting from the world we find ourselves in today.

Awesome historical site. An air show was being held for the children and community. Great show of solidarity by Park Rangers, Fire Department, and the Military.

What an outstanding piece of history. We received a brief from the staff that really opened our minds to how the times were. These are true pioneers of aviation and amazing members who took on the challenge to break down those barriers. The leaders who continued to press forward with what was right paved the way for these great Americans.
