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.

We come here a few times a year. They are always adding new exhibits. The staff/ tour guides are all volunteers and they all have hundreds of stories to tell and experiences to share. There is a wealth of knowledge out there to be soaked up. Just a little tip though. Since the staff is all volunteer.....the number of planes... More

We just went here. Harry was our tour guide, he was GREAT! You can walk around without a tour guide but you get interesting stories and you're allowed in some extra places.

In June I visited an old Air Force buddy from the 60's at Dover AFB, and was given a tour of Dover Air Force Base as it is now. Also included was the new Air Mobility Command Museum. I was pleasantly surprised and amazed at the quality of the aircraft being restored, displayed, and maintained by an all VOLUNTEER crew... More

There are two famous fighter jets and an Air Force 2 passenger jet on display but the real exhibits celebrate the workhorses of military aircraft, the transport planes. The C-5 and the 133s are planes that you have to see and board to fully appreciate. Michael and his volunteers have done a magnificant job collecting and restoring a remarkably large... More

The air mobility command is the group that hauls stuff around. Most students of war will tell you that more than one army has lost when it ran out of stuff, fuel, ammo, spare parts, and replacements. This the place to see planes and people who provide that function. The entrance to the museum is off of what looks like... More

We spent a wonderful three and a half hours exploring this most unique museum. Admission to the museum is free although donations are greatly appreciated. The museum is totally operated by dedicated, knowledgeable volunteers many who were career Air Force personnel. The inside portion of the museum located in a large hangar consist of exhibits depicting the role of our... More

We have a son in the air force and he recommended that we stop here. So glad that we did! There are so many different planes outside to view and some you can even climb around in. All of the planes outside have a very interesting info board by them too. There are even more planes and artifacts inside as... More

Dover isn't a huge city but there are some very educational benefits to this museum. The people who work here are very knowledgable about the workings of the military, base, and aircraft. Everyone here is very personable and sweet the always have a smile on their faces and a kind word to say. Over all this place is a quiet... More

Stopped by on the way home from the beach. Figured that a free museum would take less than hour. Pleasantly surprised. More aircraft than I expected. But the true gems were the volunteers. It was great to hear vets tell stories of the aircraft they served on. Ended up staying 3 hours, and could have spent MUCH more! In my... More
