The variety of Air Force aircrafts of this medium- size museum is amazing, especially the exhibition of the "real" C-5 Galaxy was a big surprise to me. A true paradise for an aviation and Air Force fan. If you're lucky, you may also be likely to see a C-5 which just took off which flies over just above your head.... More

We took our two boys, 8 & 9, along with my mother-in-law today and everyone had a great time. The third Saturday of the month is "Open Cockpit Day" and we all loved getting to see the insides of the planes. I was pleasantly surprised at how many of the planes were open. Not only were the cockpits open, but... More

Stopped here to see the different air crafts used by the Air Force. This is a nice museum for families. No admission fee, just a donation if you wish. There were quite a few air crafts on display and a couple of them were open so you could board and see what the inside was like. Will return if in... More

I was surprised at the size and diversity of the collection here. Not only the aircraft, but support equipment and supplies, and working simulators. While mostly about the airlift and cargo aspect, like a huge C5A, there are also fighter planes, a B-17 bomber, a Air Force 2 vice presidential jet (VC 9C), etc. There are always veteran volunteers available...

I never expected to see anything like that, neither had I imagined that so much history could be seen at this museum. From the President's old aircraft (I thought it was a DC9 but the sign was VC9) used by Kennedy, to the huge C5 used to evacuate the last americans from Hanoi. More than 30 aircraft are on show,...

We had been on a week long "east coast" trip hitting historic places. We started in Philly, down to Gettysburg, 2 days in DC, Williamsburg, and Norfolk. On the way from Norfolk back to Philly we decided to hit DE. After spending the night in Seaford we had about 3hrs of time to do one last thing on this trip.... More

Oh, my word! SO much more than I expected! I thoroughly loved every moment of it and want to return! The volunteers (the ones I met were former military) were all so friendly, engaging, and incredibly interesting! The stories they shared about their service and the service of others brought it all to life! Don't leave Delaware without visiting the... More

As a retired USAF member for 25 years, the Dover AFB was my first and last duty station. They have dozens of aircraft in the Museum from the B-17 to the C5-Galaxy. Also, one of the Air Force Two plane.

Was treated to a Saturday visit at the museum by my girlfriend. She had brought several books to read while I would enjoy the planes. She never opened one of them! The volunteers were so interesting with their knowledge and experience that she enjoyed the day even more than I did. We got to go into most of the aircraft... More

This was a group trip that was enjoyed by everyone. The indoor museum is absolutely terrific and seeing the history from the Berlin airlift to the present mission of the largest aircraft, the C5A for moving materiel Although the weather was poor, many of our group ventured outside to go in the giant aircraft. there are over a hundred planes...
