“Very interesting.”
Reviewed October 30, 2011

We were very fortunate to have a volunteer take the two of us around the entire museum, both inside and out. Anyone interested in airplanes, military history or just wants to see and hear some fascinating things about the Air Force, you'll love it.

“Dont waste your time”
Reviewed October 23, 2011

The museum was very interesting and it was exciting to see the old war planes. If you have small children like we did don"t bother going there the staff is RUDE! They yelled at my grandson because he touched the seats in the United States of America plane(my grandson is only three(3).

“Interesting and exciting”
Reviewed October 6, 2011

We enjoyed visiting the AMC and I was in awe of the old, gigantic planes. It is great to be able to go into the planes, walk around and see the cockpits.

What a wonderful piece of history that has been preserved. The volunter staff does a wonderful job and really enjoy showing off the planes, as if they were their own.

Young boys will especially enjoy visiting here.

“Good selection of aircraft, but no access and very little info about them”
Reviewed October 4, 2011

Potential a very good museum site with both indoor and outdoor exhibits. However, I felt it was let down by having too much crowded together indoors and having hardly any of the outdoor exhibits open to visitors. Much more information could have been provided and a museum guidebook would have been useful - especially to help me identify the many photos taken, after the event. Directions to the site were rather vague and we only arrived there after several wrong turnings - eg. into the airbase. From Dover, It is necessary to travel south on Highway 1 past the airbase (on the left) taking exit 91, going left on DE route 9 and turning left again at the museum entrance sign.

“Very Interesting Military Museum”
Reviewed October 3, 2011

My wife and I visited the Air Mobility Command Museum on September 29, 2011. Instead of featuring a lot of fighters and weapons, this museum focused on the logistics, transportation and supply aspect of the Air Force and featured many its "work house" aircraft (C-47, C-130, C-141, C-133, etc.). A vintage B-17 and a couple of fighters were also on display. Of particular interest to us were the displays about the Berlin Airlift, Medal Of Honor Recipients and in-air refueling of aircraft. The volunteer staff was very friendly and helpful. Our only (mild) disappointment was that more of the aircraft were not open to visitors.
