Specialty Museum Museum
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.

  • This place is fantastic. What made it special for my family was the tour guide we had, which I believe his name was Don, aka Ralph. We were from out of town (Chicago), and visiting my sister in law that lived in Dover. My wife and I are both Marine Corps Veterans and thought it would be neat to take our kids to this museum. It was a great display of planes, and Don's knowledge was amazing. Our family, including my sister in law, was 9 large, so he had his hands full with us. The gift shop was great as well. I think my kids bled my dry and dropped some money in there. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.
  • This was a fun place to visit, and to learn about the various aircraft that were utilized. I'll be back again with the kids, I'm sure they will enjoy the fact that you can go into some of the planes to see what it was like from the pilot's seat to the back of the plane. If you are a runner, the annual Heritage Half Marathon starts and ends at the museum.
  • Being 30+ years military life, this museum was a good museum for military aircraft lovers both Veteran and civilian alike. However, having traveled the world and seen many other military museums, the Air Mobility Command Museum is not one of my favorites. I would highly recommend visiting, but there have been cleaner, more engaging museums throughout the world.
  • This place is amazing you have a devoted staff with a depth of knowledge that you don't always find at other museums. Well worth the trip.
  • Great place to visit if you like airplane history. Many display items. Airplane interiors are open to the public for inspection. Plenty of parking onsite.
