Come fly with us, let's fly away! Well, you'll actually be staying on the ground at The Aviation Musuem of Kentucky
The Aviation Museum of Kentucky is all about the sharing the state's fascinating aviation history with all who visit with a huge 25,000 sq feet of indoor exhibit area ready to be explored, as well as a number of actual aircraft in the outdoor exhibit space.
Not only that, the Aviation Museum of Kentucky features a number of traveling exhibits as well as displays throughout the year too, so there will always be something fun to go back to!
What's great about the museum is that is allows kids to actually get up close with some incredibly historic, important and just amazing aircraft - in all forms. Make sure you take your time to really make your way around the displays as they are filled with artifacts and memorabilia that take you right through the state's aviation history.
Whilst you won't actually fly, it might just inspire you!
Kids will love hearing the stories of the real people who shaped history, realising they can achieve anything.
