I enjoyed the Air Mobility Command Museum. It is excellent, I have been there several times. I love it. Helicopters, Air force one, The C-130 plus a host of other planes.

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!

I had been here before but wanted to see the C5. Sadly C5 is being restored so couldnt go on board. That is the only problem with this museum is most of the aircraft are closed. Suposedly one weekend a month more are open but we missed that. I dont know why cargo aircraft arent opened for viewing- peole walking... More

Wonderful place to visit. Located on the back side of Dover AFB you won't need a government I.D. to get in since the museum has a separate entrance for the public. Lots to see. Airplanes from many era's. Kids will have a ball. Lots of volunteers ready to answer questions.

It's museum gets better every time I visit. I have been here four times in the last three years and every time I visit there is some new attraction. Very vibrant program everything is well-maintained something for everyone. The volunteer staff is especially helpful and extremely knowledgeable about aircraft in the history of aircraft.

What a great day trip this was for a buddy and me. If you are at the shore this summer and need an "off day" activity you should consider this. It's free, (but please consider a donation) educational, and the volunteers are mostly ex-veterans who have flown some of the planes on the tarmac. 22 planes are on display and... More

Our family was searching for something free to do when we stumbled across the Air Mobility Command Museum and we are so glad we did! As we walked in, we were greeted by several volunteers, most of which are retired/active military. They were all so eager to walk with us and give us a guided tour inside and out of... More

From the B-17 in the historic hanger to F-101, F-106 and C-5a outside, this is a fantastic museum if you like planes and military hardware! The volunteers are very knowledgeable and on open plane days you can go inside most of the planes. There's no admission charge, but drop a few dollars in the donation bin to keep this gem... More

No admission, indoor and outdoor exhibits. Nice collection of vintage aircraft. Some of the aircraft are open to walk inside. Several interactive exhibits inside. Nice gift shop

Went with three boys ages 4 to 8, they all loved it. Not many of the planes were open due to the heat but there was still plenty to keep the kids' attention for 2+ hours.
