Aviation Museum of Kentucky (Lexington, Kentucky)

The Aviation Museum of Kentucky is located at Blue Grass Airport in Lexington, Kentucky. Incorporated in April 1995, the museum was opened to the public in August of the same year. The facility has 20,000 square feet of exhibit space, and includes a library, and an aircraft restoration and repair shop.

Profile Description

An Airport-based venue with exhibits, educational programs, and the Kentucky Aviation Hall of Fame.  The museum’s permanent collection of historic airplanes, photographs, documents, and equipment recognize the contributions native Kentuckians, and those with close ties to Kentucky, made in the fields of aviation and aerospace.  

The Kentucky Aviation History Roundtable is a local group of aviation enthusiasts, founded in 1978, who first came up with the idea of a permanent aviation museum at the Blue Grass Airport.  A great number of the items from the museum’s original displays were donated from the personal collections of members of the Roundtable.

As a part of its collection, the museum displays both military and civilian aircraft. The museum details the science & history of flight, and houses aircraft ranging from restored barnstormers and vintage airliners, to historic warbirds, and aircraft of today.
