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.

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.
