This is a nice well done museum of the terminal and other interesting artifacts. Well worth spending some time in while waiting for your plane. Better yet arrive a little early to make sure to check it out.

A small museum in the airport, but with some interesting artifacts. If you enjoy history, especially military history, this is definitely worth a look. You can cover it in 10-15 minutes, or spend longer.

I thought the gallery was interesting and had some good information that I was not aware of. It is free and located in the Milwaukee airport near Gate C entrance. If you are an airplane fanatic, stop and enjoy the exhibits.

MKE airport has a hidden gem in the public main concourse (before TSA screening) where you can kill time and learn about aviation, Gen. Billy Mitchell, Capt. Sijan, and Capt Jim Lovell. Also, numerous model planes, photos, airport history, and it's FREE!
