Although the planes and other artifacts are the purpose of the museum, the veterans who volunteer are it's treasure. Mr. Redmond gave my boyfriend and I a personal tour. He is knowledgeable and fascinating.

Had a great time and learned so much. Wonder friendly and knowledgable staff. Plan to spend at least 2 hours to tour the planes outside and the control tower. Best to go in the spring/summer so the planes are open

Went here just to have something to do one Saturday. We had a blast!!!! My two boys 11 and 7 never got bored. There is so much to see here. We got to go on some of the planes and actually sit in the cockpit. The most excited part for me was actually being able to walk on Air Force... More

My boys ages 15,13 & 8 all loved this place! My bigger ones enjoyed the simulators and they all enjoyed the planes outside! They especially enjoyed going up into the planes and seeing the inside! A great day there!

I have been to every museum in Delaware and the Air Mobility Command Museum adjacent to Dover AFB is the best of the best. See aviation history unfold in the hanger turned museum and then stroll outside to see the military aircraft that have made America the superpower in aviation. Many of the aircraft and the tower are open with... More

Well worth going to visit. They have done a wonderful job with the displays inside and outside, if you like planes you'll find a smorgasborg to look at. The price is right - free (a small donation is asked).

Great indoor and outdoor exhibits--lots of hands on things for kids and enthusiastic (volunteer) guides....what a great resource we have for life-sized historical experience for homeschoolers or other school groups! I learned a lot myself! Such sacrifices were made for our country...it was touching. And many of the volunteers have their own great stories to add!

The Air Museum is a great tribute to the Air Force personnel. A most impressive display of jets, fighters and cargo and military transport planes and more. The Museum is located just outside the gates of the Dover Air Force base and very easy to find. Plenty of parking. Each of the two days that we were there we were... More

We visited this site as part of a coach tour with Country Travel Discoveries. It was well worth the time. The guide was knowledgeable and informative. One of the group was having severe knee problems and they provided an electric scooter so that she could at least move around the floor exhibits, even if she were not able to go... More

I had a chance to board a KC-135, first time in 22 years. I crewed a 135 for 20 years and loved everyday I did. Touring a C-5 with Mike as a guide was first class. The love of acft. is definitely displayed on the ramp and in the hanger.
