We did not get a chance to go outside to the actual plane exbits. I rally enjoyed the bommer which was simular to the on in the movie Memphis Belle. Definately worth seeing.... More

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Delaware. There was so much to see, all very interesting. The guide we had (a volunteer) took us outside and that is where I realized this is where our fllen soldiers come home Dover Air Force base. The Benghazi warriors also. They also have some of the World Trade Center... More

It's Dover so it's small but interesting. Can't compete with the larger city's. But they have retired airmen that are available to give details.

We retired to Delaware and soon discovered the Air Mobility Command Museum. We are so proud of this facility that we bring all of our visitors there and they marvel at the exhibits and accessibility to actual planes. Every time we go we are surprised at the new or updated exhibits.

If you go to Dover and are able to visit only one place, then this museum should be it. As you walk into the museum, you see an exhibit of Medal of Honor recipients. As you read the stories of these hero's, you get a real appreciation of what they accomplished in a short amount of flying time. The planes... More

Most large Air Force base have a museum attached to them with volunteers to maintain them. This museum had a varied selection of aircraft with a volunteer crew that was very helpful. They had aircraft from a WW2 B-17 bomber to a modern C-5A Galaxy transport. The large transports are outside while the B-17 is inside a hanger. The hanger... More

I was fortunate enough during a recent conference in Dover to spend a few hours at the museum and it was a highlight of our trip. It is not often that you get to meet such a terrific, passionate group of volunteers and veterans committed to sharing their knowledge and experiences with the general public. We were in very capable... More

My daughter and grandson had the opportunity to visit this museum while I was over visiting. I found the whole experience totally amazing. Our guide Don was very friendly and knowledgeable. As a veteran of the Vietnam war, he showed a real passion for all aspects of aviation. The exhibits are well displayed both inside and outside the hangar. To... More

This museum on Dover AFB is very nice. The displays inside are interesting and the planes outside and amazing! You can't believe the size of these planes until you see them. The volunteers are very nice too and there to answer your questions. We had lots of fun here. Highly recommend a visit if you're in the area.

This is my third time going here my roommate works on base so I can get a good tour and see everything. It is really fun on the flight simulator and it is free so there is no real risk of going. I would recommend it to any military enthusiast.
