This airfield was the primary training site for bombers leading up to the end of WWII. The crews that dropped the Fat Man and Little boy bombs on Japan trained here. The old operations building houses the museum. They have a reproduction of the Little Boy bomb, signed by the surviving members of the crew. You can climb to the... More

This is a free museum and the resort shuttle will take you there and pick you up when you are done. If you like military history its worth a look

One can tour various buildings on the former Wendover Army Air base where B29 bomber pilots were trained. Much history here with some original buildings which are in process of restoration. One can tour the Enola Gay hangar as well as one of the barracks which is restored to how it was in the 1940s.

We came across this almost by accident and its a really interesting place as its where the crew of the "Enola Gay" trained . No matter what you think of the events surrounding the use of the Atomic bombs, this is an interesting and historically important place which a small group of enthusiastic volunteers are trying to preserve .

Enjoyed looking over field and trying to imagine 20,000 men and women living there. Hope they get the money to restore the building for the future viewing of the next generation.

There are so many building here to look at ! Be sure to drive around and see all the hangars. There is a Tower that you can climb(I cannot believe they let you) and a old airplane to walk into and the museum is pretty small. It is really a self guided tour but very interesting if you like WWII... More

After a few days at Wendover when you are at the airfield waiting for your charter---------try one of the homemade sandwiches sold in the gift shop. They are made fresh each morning and are very good. They usually have turkey and cheese and ham and cheese. I saw they now have chili cheese dogs made fresh as you wait. Can't... More

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.
