Now a museum, the historic Hangar #1 can be toured; it contains two training airplanes. Hangar #2 features exhibits, including a red-tail P-51 Mustang replica, as well as a theater in which a 27-minute film documenting the history of the “Tuskegee Experience” is shown. There also are wayside exhibits on the grounds and a scenic overlook. Picnicking is permitted.
