This is a great museum of Army Air Corps and Air Force "retired" airplanes. My Dad is a WWII vet and was very impressed with how well the history was preserved. He was also able to interact with the volunteer staff who commented on how much they learned from a vet who had been there. Don't miss the opportunity to... More

A personal tour by retired Air Force-- what an honor. These gentleman are proud and knowledgeable. We got to climb into a C-6-- one the largest transport planes. A lot of history. Interactive exhibits great for families. A donation is suggested and you will definitely want to show your appreciation for this well preserved collection and dedicated staff of docents.... More

We like military Air Force Museums and we got lucky with out visit here. Just happened to arrive on a Saturday from Virginia Beach and went straight to the Museum. The weather was great and it was the one Saturday each month when the planes are open for visitors! You can walk through just about every plane, sit in the... More

My husband is a WWII airplane buff, so we had to see this place while traveling g in the area. The museum is mainly a self-guided e/perience, but there were several veteran Air Force volunteers around to share their e/periences or assist in different areas, such as trying out a flight-simulator. My husband enjoyed that we were able to tour... More

Not my first time visiting the Museum but definitely the best time! Ed R greeted us and gave us such a wonderful, relaxed tour of the planes. When you find out that this exhibit functions solely on the dedication of volunteers, it truly is amazing. Loved seeing the new glider - will be going back next month to enter some... More

Just went there last week and took our 9 yr old grandson. He loved it, and got to go out into the yard and get up close to so many planes from the Air Force. He was amazed that they were so big. Loved seeing the cockpits of a few of them and how big the transport planes were inside.... More

The Air Mobility Command Museum is located on Dover AFB, however, the entrance is off Route 9 so you don't actually go on the base to access it. The museum is free and is an awesome experience for adults and children. Upon entering the hangar, you'll be treated to background music from World War II. There's a large assortment of... More

We had a delightfully educational and just plain good time. From the moment we walked in, we were introduced to all we would want to see...John was so very kind to take us on a personal tour. We went places I don't think are normally on the tour...thank you for the special treatment. If you are into history, airplanes, or... More
