We visited the Air Mobility Museum on March 22, 2023 with a group of 24 students and 10 adults that are part of a homeschool group. They split us into groups of 10-12 and each group had their own guide. Our guide spent two hours with our group touring the musem and five of the planes. The stories these guides, who I believe are all veterans, tell about working on these planes are awesome! This was our second field trip to the Air Mobility museum and it is such an amazing place! They have free parking and admission is free! Definetely leave a donation to keep supporting this great museum!

Good idea to stop at this museum. Our guide was terrific, and we highly recommend having one to really get the most out of the exhibits. The flight simulator was fun. It was raining so we could not go into the planes outdoors. But we got to go into a plane kept inside. Admission is free, but a donation can be made.

What a wonderful museum. Plenty of well laid out educational exhibits inside and a great collection of aircraft inside and out. We especially loved getting to go inside some of the aircraft. There is nothing like experiencing hands-on learning with my homeschooled son who is an aviation buff! Don't miss climbing up to the control tower for a great view. The tour guides are amazing and many of those we spoke to do the hard work of restoring and maintaining the collection as well. I would highly recommend accepting the offer of one of these knowledgeable folks to accompany you around the museum. Enjoyed every minute and can't wait to return! ps... be sure to support the museum with a visit to their well-stocked gift shop too! :)

We are from out of state visiting for our child’s sports tournament. We had some extra time left on the start of our day and decided to check out this museum. We stumbled into a volunteer tour guide, Mr. Bill Rogers, who took us on a great history tour of these awesome birds! So much rich American aviation history at this museum and highly recommend this museum to all passing through.

Thank you to the kind and very knowledgeable volunteers who continue passing on the history of all that’s on display.

An absolutely amazing time visiting the Air Mobility Museum … I had no idea, in spite of knowing our country’s history, what it took to move and provide our troops with the equipment needed during war time. These air planes are huge and everyone had a guide to tell the story and give information. Highly recommend this be a stop on your visit.

My daughter and I had the best time! We got a personal tour with one of the tour guides, who was an Air Force veteran, David Lewis. He was truly informative and entertaining. He made us laugh, shared with us personal stories from his days in the Air Force and taught us a lot of history of the planes, the Air Force and the museum. I was there 10 years ago, and since then, a lot more planes have been added and the museum as a whole is growing. There's a lot to see and this is a museum that is geared toward all ages. If you are looking to capture some of American history, especially to endure the men and women who bravely fought for our country, then you would truly enjoy this museum.

We haven’t visited the museum in years ... and it has only improved over the time. First it is free to enter. It isn’t the largest plane museum, but its a great visit. Our tour guide was Bill Rodgers ... he was an awesome guide. Picked us up as we were viewing some of the planes, took us around to all the aircraft and had some details about each plane that wasn’t commonly known.

Bill continued our tour in the hanger. His knowledge on the exhibits was great ... we throughly enjoyed out time with Bill at the museum and would highly recommend it when visiting Dover,DE.

We decided to make an impromptu visit on our way home from Dewey beach! I highly recommend the open cockpit days, the third Saturday of each month. They start in the spring and into October! It was so cool getting to walk through the planes and they had several retired air force and military personnel to explain the air craft. Plan on several hours, the yard with the retired planes took us a good hour and there are the inside exhibits and a 9-11 memorial we didn't have time to check out.

Since our son is a 20 year Air Force retiree and spent 5 years at Dover AFB in AMC as a cargo and logistics expert, it was a no brainer for us to visit the museum. We had a guided tour (which we recommend) by Stan of the aircraft both inside and outside of the facility and he did a great job! Would definitely return.....especially when they have open-cockpit Saturday. And since our son had worked with a number of the more modern cargo aircraft, he was able to add his own working knowledge of the operations.

We stopped by the museum today. Our tour guide Mel was very knowledgeable about the various aircrafts at the museum. He was very passionate about the history of them and shared with us many details about each one. Our favorite was the C5 Galaxy, and Mel spent over 30 minutes showing us the inside and outside of the plane, which was so interesting to learn the history of where we we were standing, which dated back to the 70s. Highly recommend stopping by the museum and taking a guided tour. Fantastic!

Jessica, Thank you for the wonderful review of the AMC Museum. I will be sure to pass along your gratitude to Mel, who is one of our newest Docent's. (I guess we'll keep him around awhile!)
