It is worth the effort to go to this out of the way mu.seum on the premises of the Dover AFB More or less for the aviation buff or former military but kids might like it too and the price is right!

If you are interested in the history of the Air Force and how it's task of moving and suppling troops and aid this is a great place to visit from fighters, bombers and the transporting of supplies and aid you can see and touch this history and relive it. A great place for the family to visit.

Very interesting displays, helpful volunteers. We learned a lot of interesting tidbits. It's located mostly within a hanger so it's cold in the winter. Some of the displays could use some updating and maintenance.

We live in the Dover area and have visited several times. It is extremely interesting and new planes are added occasionally. Really nice way to spend the afternoon. They have no admission cost just donations. Well worth visiting.

This is a free chance to physically check out various USAF planes and jets. A great educational tool for children and perfect for a school field trip. The best part is the hands on experience along with retired USAF people who have the actual experience, telling their role of serving our great country.

The museum and staff are outstanding. Always a great time especially during the Christmas season when they have the trains set up for the kids. We usually visit 3-4 times a year and always enjoy ourselves.

We liked being able to see the planes up close and actually getting to go inside certain ones. It was also great having military personnel there to explain details about the planes and answer our questions.
