“We go all the time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

Are you going to be in the area? Then stop in!! Young or old your going to enjoy it. Free to walk around but they do take donations. Planes inside and out where you can go inside most of them. Great learning experience for kids. Don't forget to go in the gift shop full of neat things at good prices.

“AMC MUSEUM DOVER AFB”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

Awesome experience. Staff members are friendly and very helpful.

From the highway, indications to the museum are tricky. However its well worth the visit.

Static displays are fantastic. The Museum conveys a eonderful WWII era music accompaniment when walking on flightline

“Good History”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

Really excited to go. My hopes were set high, shouldn't have set them so high. Overall, it was a good experience, very thorough detail on everything. There are a lot of planes out on display outside. On the inside, there are a couple planes and a lot of detail. Flight history, how airplanes are made, very in depth details. There are several different types of missiles and videos to watch as well. The outdoor segment, in my opinion, is a gold mine. There are at least 25 different airplanes outside, all with signs giving detail of the type, year made, and some specifications. The down side of this place is that depending on the day and number of volunteers, determines which planes outside are open to tour... I had my sights set on the new C-5 Galaxy they had just received..of course, it was not open. Only two cargo were open, which was interesting to go inside and see, but kind of a let down. Overall, I'd say it was a positive experience, but when I go again, I'll call ahead to see which airplanes are open.

Planemeister, Manager at Air Mobility Command Museum, responded to this review, January 29, 2014
I am sorry you felt we deserved a low grade for ONLY having two aircraft open during a cold January day given the rest of your review. We are one of the few aviation museums in the country to have ANY aircraft open on a regular basis. 99% of our super dedicated staff members are volunteers and even they are hesitant open up an additional aircraft for one or two visitors. We tell everyone the C-5, and additional planes, are open the third Saturday of each month. Given limited resources that is the best we can do. You are welcome to come back then.

“Not so big you have to rush.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

This has lots of history and many of the planes you can get in and roam around inside. I was able to get into one of the planes I flew in. Funny how small it was compared to what I remembered. I met a guy who was a load master on that type of transport and he had some great stories. :)

“What an experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

We have been here several times with our child and it NEVER disappoints. Entrance is FREE (we love that), the displays are impressive and informative, and each time we go we see something we missed before. There is a large inside area, full of planes and displays, and a large area of tarmac with a collection of planes to be seen, some you can go in! Air Force Two is in the collection and one Saturday a month it is open for self-guided tours (AWESOME). There is also a C-5 Galaxy plane, mindblowingly large.

If you get a chance to stop in, you should. What a great place to take your kids!
