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 is a fine, small aviation museum. Small really only describes it on the inside, as its World War II-era hanger is dominated by two not-so-small but immaculate restorations of a C-47 Skytrain and ...  read more »
  • Really cool museum. Admission is free, and they feature lots of military aircraft, old and modern. You can go inside some aircraft, and an old air traffic control tower. The guides are knowledgeable and friendly. There's planes inside and outside. Perfect for a day visit.
  • This place is a lot of fun. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. The planes are amazing to see and the gift shop has a lot of nice things in it.
  • What a hidden gem. Great dosents. Great displays. Wonderful. I go to all of these things, all around the world.. this was wonderful. GPS couldn't figure out how to get there. Base roads got all "9/11" and the Internet's didn't have it figured yet. Tried to get me through base.. doesn't connect anymore. Follow the signs on the highway..
  • It's free, the volunteers are knowledgeable and ready to trade stories with your dad or grandpa! Good outdoor exhibits, a few particular days a month they ope more planes for going into. But, the indoor museum is excellent, located in a hanger. The only drawback is that it is a drive to get here, meaning it's a special trip.Also, no cafe! I've been here twice, if I'm in the area again, I wouldn't mind going back again.
  • Great place with a large piece of our countries history! Our tour guide (a WWII vet) was extremely knowledgeable and very personable, my 13 year old son still talks about him. Going to make our second visit today. Oh and all the tour guides are volunteers!
