The museum is located on the Dover USAF Base and is free. The volunteers are wonderful at explaining and conducting tours. They have a very nice gift shop and make sure to make a donation to help sustain the facility before you leave.

It is worth the effort to go to this out of the way mu.seum on the premises of the Dover AFB More or less for the aviation buff or former military but kids might like it too and the price is right!
