I've been here before and am always surprised to see the changes they have in store for everyone. Again it was worth the trip. When you arrive at the Museum your on the back of the Dover AFB. I was lucky that day to have a C5 take off. What a big bird. I was able to go inside some... More

On our way home from Ocean City, we had always passed the signs for the museum. Decided to stop. Very happy we did lots and lots to see. You can look at your own pace and there are volunteers to answer any questions if you have them. Some of the planes were open so you can walk thru them. We... More

It was a wonderful day. There wasn't enough time to see everything, because it was so cool. We hit it on a third Saturday so a large amount of the planes were open and could be toured. The volunteers were amazing, they made the experience. We also got to visit the control tower-what a once and a lifetime experience. The... More

If you are a military buff and enjoy history, this provides an opportunity for both. Easy to get to and a nice way to spend some time.

Second time visiting, first review. Rode over on motorcycles with 5 friends to visit the museum. We did this a few years back and wanted to do it again. Awesome display of planes inside and out (including a B-17 and a C-47), not just cargo planes but a couple of jet fighters and bombers. Bear in mind the museum is... More

What a great place! We visited the museum after reading the recommendations Trip Advisor. I don't think my review will do this place justice, but I will try. First of all, one of our friends injured a toe the evening before and was afraid she would be unable to complete the tour. Not to worry-an electric cart was provided for... More

The museum has a small indoor exhibit with areas dedicated to each of the significant conflicts the U.S. has been involved in since the early 1900's with planes representative of each of those wars. The B-17 bomber was particularly interesting with its hanging gun turrets. There are several planes that you can go into if there is a tour guide... More

Stopped off here on the way to Lewes for a holiday. The place is fantastic if you like US Military aircraft and even if you don't it is still a great place to see. It is a working military airport and you can see planes landing and taking off. It is free to walk round and they only ask for... More

Walk through a air lift airplane. Visit a control tower. Sit in a trainer or simulator, Walk around a number of retired airplanes. The volunteers are the heart and soul of this place. Make sure to leave time to listen to stories about flying in the last 70 years!
