Air Mobility Command Museum celebrates the rich heritage of the United States Air Force, highlighting the stories of men and women who have flown and maintained military aircraft. Located inside one of the hangars of an operational Air Force base, the museum features a collection of 30 restored aircraft. To learn the little-known facts behind these historical airplanes, take a tour of the hangar with one of the volunteer guides, (many of whom are retired pilots, flight engineers, and navigators who participated in actual events involving these craft). Before you leave, stop by the museum store to find Air Force-themed caps, T-shirts, and patches.

We received a guided tour of both the outside planes ( C5) and through the museum inside. I learned a lot about Air Force and the people who served and how the planes were used throughout history...

Took the kids here for a fun day trip. We were not disappointed! It was a fantastic museum with great exhibits, and friendly staff. The majority of the staff members are Air Force and Navy veterans that are very knowledgeable on the aircraft and supporting equipment. You may request for a tour guide at no cost also. We loved this museum and highly recommend you take stop by for a visit. Additionally, there are free to use wheelchairs and motorized mobility scooters. We are planning a future revisit for sure.
What a great and historical gem. The staff on site are very knowledgeable and nice. The C-5 flies over us everyday and to walk in one you realize how big it really is. I love WW2 history and they have a nice display.....well done! I plan on going back soon as the first time we were there close to closing and I want to really take it all in
We were so fortunate that we got an opportunity to visit this beautiful place. Loved to see all the planes. They had two planes open for visitors where we could see the inside of the planes. This was the first time I entered a military aircraft. It was indeed an awesome experience!!!!
This place is great. Recommend a tour from one of the retired guys. The cost is donations only (my kind of price - free)! Inside museum and outdoor airplane graveyard. Several planes that you can go in. Lots of history and one of a kinds. I am not a big Airplane guy, but it was very interesting. I do like history and how things work. I had three teenagers and they also enjoyed it. Visited on a Friday, but don't think it gets too busy any day of the week.
Fantastic place for Military Aviation enthusiasts. There aren't many small planes here. It's mostly the 30 or so largest cargo, tankers, and support planes in the Air Force inventory. If you go on the 3rd Saturday of the month, all of them are open for tours on the inside. The day I went was a Tuesday and there were only two of the outdoor planes open - a massive C5, and a C-130. A few others were open earlier but closed because of hot weather making the inside of the planes unbearable. In the hanger there are many dioramas and even a B-17. They are closed Mondays, so call ahead to make sure you are going to be there when they are open. The planes themselves are kept up and they were in the process of repainting 3 of them. The staff is knowledgeable and very willing to answer any question you have. There's also a gift shop with lots of aviation related items.
