A quaint little museum on the grounds of the historic Fort Wayne. It tells the story of the first black airmen of America who fought in World War II and their achievements following the War until the Armed Forces were integrated .The tour guide is well informed and really gives you an insight into a time when many people thought black men lacked the intelligence and courage to be pilots. The museum is new and well maintained although it's a little small but the wide array of artefacts do make up for it. Visitors are treated to a collection of rare model aircrafts, equipments, supplies, uniforms, photographs and a continuous video presentation.

Tuskegee Airmen National Museum Reviews & Ratings
I loved all of the information received while on this trip
It's really cool to look around and see the uniforms and all historical pieces.
It's amazing too see and hear the History
The museum is located right next to the airfield. It really sets the mood as you hear planes coming and going. The museum has 2 sheds and tons of content to see. There is a video in the theater that runs on the hour and there are also video booths that you can sit in and watch different videos on the airmen. There is also a gift store that has hats, shirts, patches, books and all kinds of collector items.
Very friendly and nice volunteers walk you through the entire history of these unsung heroes.
