We're losing some of our history!

Because the airbase was handed off to the state of Utah by the feds, and then by the state of Utah to the county, too little has been done to maintain this historic airfield. The... read more

It is a shame that this place is falling by the wayside. This place could have so much potential . It is hard to find due to a lack of signage, once you get to the place you are on your own finding the museum. There are 3 or 4 building that look like one good gust of wind could... More

Because the airbase was handed off to the state of Utah by the feds, and then by the state of Utah to the county, too little has been done to maintain this historic airfield. The museum is definitely worth visiting. They have a nine-minute video that gives a good overview of the airfield and how important it was during World... More

Interesting if you're into history. It's where the first atomic bomb was assembled. There were many artifacts dating back to that era. There was also a short film about WWII, and the development of the bomb.

It is a work in progress. Rebuilding the structures that have diminished over the decades. All the information shared as to what our parents and grandparents did in the past thru the Air Force and prepareing for that fateful day.

This was a nice break from the casinos. Learned a lot about the Army Air Base Wendover. They have a small and quaint museum/gift shop. At this time they have NO aircraft, except an gutted out plane that was used to film "Con Air". They are working on trying to get aircraft, and renovate the hangers and other buildings. It... More

Yeah, a visit to the Wendover airfield means experiencing the atmosphere of the cold war and the 50's/60's atomic developments. It's mostly deserted, but if you like post-war industrial design, it's a must to visit!

Was fortunate to stumble on this little piece of history.. Hard to believe something so great started so close to home. Landed in a small plane here.. Very quaint and efficient airport.

The historical value to this little airfield is immeasurable! The Enola Gay was loaded at Wendover Airfield for that historical flight! Some very interesting sights and very sad to say the base itself is in such disrepair! The museum is very interesting and certainly worth a visit.
