Info & Amenities

Located just miles from Downtown Savannah where the Eighth Air Force began on January 28, 1942, the National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force tells the compelling story of ordinary people whose lives were transformed by extraordinary commitment and sacrifice. Thousands of artifacts including a restored B-17 Flying Fortress, photographs and oral histories donated by veterans and their families tell these stories in a way that takes the visitor to WWII England and on missions above occupied Europe. The National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force is an experience that should not be missed.
