This spot has a little of everything: great airplanes, hall of heroes, interesting facts, hidden gems, kids fun, simulators, etc. Just off Hwy 1 south of Dover Air Force Base, it brings the history of the base and airlift to life. Almost every airplane is open and available to tour. The guides are friendly and knowledgeable. The best part is... More

In only thirty years the Air Mobility Command Museum has gone from an outdated, unused hangar with the remains of planes the experts said were junk to one of the finest aviation museums in the world. They have a collection of aircraft that run from a C47 that carried airborne troops on D-day to a C5-A that launched an ICBM... More

The museum inside had many photos of WWII flyers and aircraft. Simulators and hands on exhibits were informative, Outside airplanes were available to board and tour guides explained the workings. Very interesting.We were able to sit in a couple cockpits.So much history. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit

Sit in the very jumpseat from which US soldiers parachutted into Normany. See the holes left by German bullets. Learn about how the US won WW II in Europe and saved Berlin through the Airlift. The tour guides (especially Bill Lee) make history come alive!

This Museum contains United States Military Aircraft from several generations. Outside there are many large aircraft, including an impressive C5-A. The air conditioned building has smaller airplanes and Helicopters.

We thoroughly enjoyed this museum. They had numerous planes outside with great information on each one. The few that were open to walk into were very interesting too. They had a C5 also which you just have to see to comprehend and appreciate. Once we finished and went into the museum, it was packed with even more. They had bios... More

Right off the hi-way, free entry, staffed by many knowledgeable volunteers. Got to see Air Force 2 outside and walk inside, plus lots of varied and historical planes. Only criticism is that none of the simulators inside were manned else would have loved to have a go.. Gift shop inside well stocked selling rare items for collectors and children alike.

The AMC has a number of very unique aircraft in its collection and it one of the most important museums of the United States Air Force and amongst the most important military aviation museums in the world. It's focused on military transport aircraft, and is the only museum to have a Lockheed C-5A Galaxy on display. Unlike many other military... More
