  • Visited the museum for the first time today. We spent the majority of our time outside looking around. Ed R was the gentleman who showed us around and provided us with all the information about the planes. He absolutely went above and beyond showing my family around! We will most definitely be back because we still have the inside to explore. Wonderful place to bring children and learn some history.
  • Very nice.The volunteers are veterans& seem to truly care that you learn as much as possible. Some great relics and ships from the great war. A must see for anyone who has not visited yet & to top it off its free. Call ahead for best times & to be sure your visit will "be all it can be".
  • As a former C-130 Hercules Flight Engineer I have to say that I'm highly impressed with this museum. Inside the building is a C-47 that flew on D-Day. I was able to see it on D day plus 74 years to the day awesome!!!The workmanship was stunning. The aircraft looked, smelled and felt as if it it had just landed from the D-Day mission complete with the actual bullet holes from enemy anti aircraft guns. The outside exhibits were also excellent. There are tours and you can see the former Dover AFB control tower. Please stop in and see this museum.
  • Want to go back at my leisure and see some exhibits that I missed initially. The retired pilot tour guide was excellent and very patient with the Pre-K class I was with. Definitely a must-see !
  • WOW! This place is amazing! I really wasn't interested in visiting the museum, but my 14yr old son wanted to go. I reluctantly agreed; especially when he said that they offer FREE ADMISSION. I am SO HAPPY that I let him talk me into going. We met some VERY nice folks and saw some amazing aircraft. If you find yourself in the Dover area, you simply MUST make a stop here. It's well worth your time.
