Inside the hangar, there is a collection of World War II planes. There is also a wall chart that shows which planes were based at Dover Air Force Base and when they were there, indicating the wars and conflicts they were involved in. Outside there are quite a few planes, including some that you can board. There are guides who... More

Loved this place!! They have free simulators and planes on the field that you can walk into to have a look around. Although it was unavailable to us when we visited, they also have times where you can go inside a real cockpit, too! We were lucky enough to see an old control tower (only available with a guide, also... More

Took 12 14 year old girl scouts! They had a blast, and only two were aviation geeks! Volunteers really know their stuff and funny too! We witnessed a Purple heart recognition (Not pinning!) ceremony! Everyone walked away with a for-fun wooden challenge coin!

My trip to the museum was quiet and relaxing. The small gift shop is full of books, patches, stickers, shirts, hats, and small aircraft! The museum itself is not huge but it is not small. It took me about 3 hours to go through the inside, and that included reading everything and watching the videos. The outdoor side of the... More

The volunteers at the museum are all very informative and more than happy to answer all your questions. It is opened year round but for the best experience you should come the third Saturday April through September when all the planes are opened and ready for you to explore.

Went with my boyfriend one weekend while taking Route 9 back home from a visit with family in NJ. Just decided we'd pop in and see what it was all about. Have passed it many times before. Interesting history of aircraft used in the military. We were allowed to go up to the old tower. The planes outside were not... More

We visited during the holidays, so they had the model trains set up and my 3 year old loved them! We were guided by a very friendly veteran who loved telling us stories. It's a great way to teach your kids to respect those who have fought for our country. I am not a museum type of person, but still... More

Big planes and small ones, the ones your father or grandfather flew in 1944 or 1994, even a Presidential carrier....all on display and many open to clamber around in and imagine piloting or being transported overseas.
