Great exhibit of all kinds of air transport. There's talk of enlarging the museum outdoors, where there are quite a few aircraft. People who love aviation never get enough of these kinds of museums.

I have been to the AMC Museum in Dover, DE several times but this time was with a group and we had the opportunity to see all the planes outside. We had the opportunity to walk through Airforce Two which was the vice presidential airplane. We also walked in to a C5 plane. It was amazing how huge the plane... More

You do not need to go on base, and do not need a base pass, to see the Museum. You access it from Rt. 9. Admission is 100% free. All are welcome. My two little boys love airplanes and love this museum. Each time is a different experience as they selectively open a few airplanes per day for the public... More

We took our family to see the Museum. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed climbing up into the planes! They also have a great gift shop!

For such an inconspicuous site, the DAFB Air Mobility Command Museum is a small wonder to behold. Its a time capsule into the past for aviation and related memorabilia. Everyone is so nice and willing to share great information. Having a parent who was in three major USA wars, the artifacts I got to see gave me a more visual... More

This is a must see for anyone who is an aircraft enthusiast or a military enthusiast. Make sure you have adequate time to visit both the inside and outside displays. Dover Air Force Base has a long history dating back to WWII. Even if you have been there before, it's worth another look. They have updated there displays.

A fantastic journey into AMC history! Great gift shop, dynamite staff, and an incredible inventory of aircraft & memorabilia. Well worth the stop! Easy access! Private entrance separate form the base.

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
