On a trip south on Route 9 to Dover with stops in Delaware City, Port Penn, and Smyrna, I arrived at the Air Mobility Command Museum which was the first of two attractions I planned to visit. The Air Mobility Command Museum is at historic Hangar 1301 at the former Dover Army Airfield, the place where secret rocket development took... More

Spent an exciting day 11/15 with my grandson--his first visit, my 5th or 6th, to the AMC museum. Sat in the cockpit of a C-5, climbed onboard several historic planes and listened to vets sharing their war experiences. Military, U.S., and aviation history come together in the hangar and on the flight deck. Plenty of interactives and displays to keep... More

When my husband wanted to go to the museum, I thought how boring but was I surprised. Very interesting and exciting especially to stand next to a C5 plane and see how huge they really are. You could go inside some of the planes and WOW. Great time, especially since it was for free. They ask for donations and after... More

My husband and I have visited air museums all over the country, because he was in the Air Force and loves to see the vintage planes. This museum, located right outside of the Dover Air Force Base, is amazing. Since my husband was stationed at the Dover base when he was in the Air Force, he was very interested in... More

We enjoyed this trip back in time. Purchased a few memorabilia items and enjoyed looking around their shop. Airplane tours were wonderful and the lunch we had in the cafeteria was great.

I was here 3 years ago and the museum was great. Now it is amazing. The staff is doing a phenomenal job of keeping up and adding to this museum. The guides are knowledgeable and the artifacts are outstanding. I became a member for only $30 a year to help keep this great place going. Free parking and free admission... More

An excellent museum with so much to see including a tarmac full of planes. This museum focuses on many of the large cargo planes used by the Air Force but also includes some other excellently done exhibits. The volunteer tour guides are full of information be sure and ask them questions. Admission is free and on the 3rd Saturday of... More

This museum not only traces the history of air force heavy haulers but also celebrates the history of Dover AFB and commemorates the heroic men and women who have flown in defense of this great nation and chronicles their stories and the events that shaped air power. You can walk through and around aircraft so large they look like aluminum... More
