The Tennessee Museum of Aviation
Perfectly restored vintage aircraft.
WHERE HISTORY LIVES! Airworthy Warbirds are the foundation of this 50,000 sq ft facility. The Tennessee Museum of Aviation is located in the Gatlinburg-Pigeon Forge Airport (GKT) in Sevierville. This unique location helps to bring aviation history to life as vintage aircraft are sometimes seen performing unscheduled flight demonstrations.
Aviation enthusiasts will appreciate browsing the Exhibit Gallery's professionally designed displays, containing hundreds of artifacts tracing aviation and military history. Explore the touching Faith and Courage exhibit, paying tribute to U.S. Military Chaplains from WW II through the present. A 52-ft "Wave Wall" traces significant milestones in aviation history from before the Wright Brothers, including timelines of Military Aviation and Tennessee's remarkable contributions to aviation.
As you enter the Aircraft Hangar, the bright well-lit interior creates an impressive atmosphere. The 35,000 sq ft hangar features aircraft engines and cockpits, military vehicles, and magnificently restored warbirds. Among the aircraft, the two airworthy Republic P-47 Thunderbolts will almost certainly leave a sense of admiration, as there are less than a dozen of these WW II fighters remaining in the world. Another outstanding aircraft is the Douglas A-1H Skyraider, complete with battle scars received from its service during Vietnam. The museum's collection of trainers, fighters, helicopters, jets and amphibious aircraft will definitely satisfy the interest of warbird fans.
A visit isn't complete without taking home a souvenir. The Flying Spirit Gift Gallery has an extensive selection of unique aviation related gifts.
Whether you're a seasoned pilot or just have a passing interest in flight, the Tennessee Museum of Aviation is a must-see while visiting the Great Smoky Mountains. Travel off the beaten path and explore the fascinating realm of flight at this hidden treasure.
