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.

Museum has been upgraded since my last visit quite a few years ago.Cadet waiting room was very realistic. Overall a very good place to find some much needed history. Great for children.

Wow! This should be a mandatory visit for everyone. It is heart wrenching and inspiring at the same time. You could stay all day looking at the exhibits. These were amazing people with grit and deep determination against the most vulgar racism. You will cry. But your heart will swell too.

PHENOMENAL museum! Phenomenal! I read Booker T. Washington's book "Up From Slavery." a long time ago. Seeing the actual buildings that the original students built a long time ago was deeply inspiring. It brought so much light to what I learned in his autobiography. I would highly, highly encourage everyone to go.

Always wanted to go here. Had the chance to on the 4th of July. They unfortunately were closed but walked around and took some beautiful pictures. Hope to go back soon and explore the hangers. Here's a panoramic photo!
