The planes are what you are attracted to when you enter. The volunteers make it a very interesting visit. The volunteer guides that we guided by were very knowledgeable and extremely interesting. The amount of work and effort restoring and maintaining the various aircraft indicates that this museum is a labor of love. When visiting Dover Delaware a visit to... More

Had a car to show at Wheels and Wings.. Del Rods Car Club always put on a great show. Have been in two of the shows, this year and last year. Had a great time and the weather this year was fantastic. Always a great time, the museum staffers are great.

This was all new to me, but I could tell the array of planes on display was a big deal, both in terms of the number of planes and the type of planes. I particularly liked the interpretive displays showing how the Air Force planes were used for many humanitarian missions, including supplying the city of Berlin with supplies by... More

Like many, I've driven by this museum many times on my way to Virginia Beach, while on a business trip I actually had the time to stop. As you drive down the entrance road, off in the distance you see the rudder of a C-5A above the roof line and realize there is something special around the next curve in... More

I've passed by this museum many times travelling to and from the Delaware beaches. Today my wife and I stopped and had a very enjoyable visit. The main exhibits in the hanger (in my opinion) were the C-47 and the B-17. There are interactive exhibits that are accessible to children. The volunteers are very friendly and helpful; one of the...

Our guide was very knowledgable about each plane. Lots of planes to see and many you can enter. We don't know much Air Force history, but enjoyed the whole experience. There is also a nice gift shop.

We were short on time but found the planes very interesting. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. My husband was more interested than me but I enjoyed it.

Clean, easy access, lots and lots of displays. The tour guides were excellent and it was FREE (donations accepted). Great way to spend a day away from the beach, lots of planes to look at. The bathrooms were clean and every volunteer was friendly and knowledgeable.

Every model aircraft flown by the Air Force is stored here. Retired pilots staff it and give tours. If you're lucky, you'll talk to an airman who flew the actual plane you're viewing. It's worth it for all ages as they make it very interactive. So much history here, but the WWII history is the most fascinating.
