Highly recommend, You can walk through a former Air Force One. Amazing I walked where the President walked, Insight into the daily operations of support, an area that I never realized the importance of. For me, the museum-the history of the men and women and their acts of valor on the walls had me in tears and truly made me... More

Dover Air Force Base in Dover, Delaware is often in the news but typically for sad reasons, when aircraft are seen returning the bodies of soldiers to the U.S. Dover is the largest Air Force base handling logistics for the military services. Tucked into a corner of the Air Base is the Air Mobility Command Museum containing over 30 aircraft... More

This museum is a gift to our country and the volunteers should be incredibly proud of what they've created!

This is awesome place! Admission is free! It is ran by volunteers. I took my three girls 10,7 & 2, they had a great time. At first I was worried because they aren't much into history or air craft, but to my suprise they loved it. Ended up spending over 3 hours. The planes from the past are interesting. The... More

Very nice museum! Took 3 kids (12, 3, and a baby) & they really enjoyed it. The planes were beautiful and nicely displayed outside. Only wish the planes were available to enter and explore! There is a section outside with different tributes to fallen soldiers. Inside there is even more to see with wax people, pictures, and much more. We... More

This is a must see stop for anyone or any family traveling through the Dover area. There is an extensive collection of aircraft from a C5 transport to a cargo plane used during the Berlin airlift after WWII. Another transport aircraft in the museum was actually involved in in dropping airborne troops during the Normandy invasion. This place is a... More

My son has been here at least 3 times and loves it. It is nice to go as locals and see it instead of having to travel far. Take the guided tour. You get lots of good info.

As an aerospace engineering student, the exhibited aeroplanes allowed me to just admire the many parts and styles involved in the building of aircrafts since the beginning of the last century. The ambiance is just like that of WWII, with the music and the very nice volunteers always there to answer the many questions they're asked. Don't forget to try... More

In doors is modestly spaced and yet they could get more in there to exhibit despite that. Out side is where the bulk of the planes are which is a good cross section of American transport/airlift/tanker planes/jets of the last 75 years Unfortunately we were there on a day when the heat index was over 105 degrees so the planes...
