We have put off visiting this museum for too long and the family and I finally got here today. Lots to see and do. We have to come back soon since we were pressed for time. I recommend packing a lunch and allow at least 4 hours if you plan to do it all in one day. There is no... More

This is a great FREE attraction with ample parking. Bonus - it is right next to the runway at Dover AFB so if an airplane is landing or taking off it's a real thrill (if you are an airplane nerd like me). The tour guides in the tour guide office did not seem interested in giving us a tour when... More

Spent many hours here with an excellent guide, Paul Roy, who was a flight engineer on many of the planes in the museum including the C5. Wonderful museum with many planes open to explore... Coming back for sure for the open cockpit Saturday.. Third Saturday of the month. Absolutely a must-see.

We have visited the Air Mobility Command museum before. Right after we visited they acquired a new plane, the C5A. This plane is incredible! The tour guide, who is a volunteer Veteran, gave us tremendous information about the plane! It's hard to believe that it flies! Every 3rd Saturday they open all of the planes so you can go inside!...

This was an amazing stop for us. We arrived just after they had opened and were not sure exactly what to do as we entered. There were no maps or pamphlets saying you are here or suggesting where to start. Once we wandered into the main bay and a volunteer found us, we were treated to in depth descriptions about... More

I have drive past the AMC Museum numerous times and always wanted to stop, I finally did and was not disappointed. The aircraft displayed inside and out are wonderful examples of US Army Air Corp/USAF aircraft from WWII through the turn of the 21st century. The displays and expert docents explain each aircraft and you could easily spend 6-8 hours... More
