We visited the Historic Wendover Airfield on a visit to Wendover it was very informative about the base. Would recommend watching the 8 minute video (located inside the visitors center) about the base and it's operation during WW2. Will visit again when we are in the area.

Stayed out at the old base for some military training we did in Wendover. Got to tour the whole airfield and see where they loaded the Atom Bomb onto Enola Gay. Hearing the stories and seeing the building that housed the massive aircraft was incredible. Check it out if youre passing through.

A great place to tour. In fact just to walk around the WW2 base where the Enola Gay aircrew trained was a weird experience. There is also an Interesting museum to see.

Even though this was our first visit to the Historic Airfield Wendover, we found it easy to find. There is a sign pointing to it from the major highway in town; as well as one could see the air strip on our drive through town. There is also information on how to find it at the Visitor Center. Its historic... 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
