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).

  • I was on vacation and we choose this place to go to. Wao is a beautiful and peaceful museum. You can can see different kind of plane big or small.
  • This place is absolutely amazing! The maintenance on the airplanes is perfect. The staff is helpful. The museum is overall very informative (the history on the supply lines to Berlin is specially interesting). The store is really good too. It is worth checking and supporting with donations and purchases.
  • Sitting just off of the famous base in Dover, DE, this museum is a great place to enjoy the history of the USAF. You are able to take in a view of the airfield and enjoy a wonderful indoor/outdoor hybrid exhibit space both. The volunteers and staff are very knowledgable and a good majority have some form of military service!
  • Bill Westgard was the best guide ever. His knowledge about the planes is incredible. It was neat to hear his first hand stories about flying the planes during Vietnam. He kept our 4 and 7 year old entertained. We feel honored to have spent the morning with him. Thank you Bill.
  • Nicholas & I had an great time at ACMC on Veteran's Day. Be sure to request a tour of the tower!
