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. Make Air Mobility Command Museum a centerpiece of your Dover vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Dover trip itinerary maker tool.

  • This is definitely a must see if you are in the area! There are exhibits inside the hanger that now serves as the museum, and tons of planes outside. All are well marked and described if you prefer....  more

  • Absolutely wonderful for all ages. My children and I sincerely appreciated our tour guide (Bob), he did a fantastic job showing us around. His stories and details captured out attention right from the start. The museum is so beautifully kept and wonderful to have this for the public! The kids got so much more out of this in real life than they ever could from a history book, but I feel they will appreciate history class in a whole new way now. Thank you!
  • This is a nice place for all ages. We didn't even schedule a tour , and one of the tour guides came over and let us go inside the planes inside, and he answered our questions. It was very informative, and moving to learn so much. My girls which are 11, 9, and 6 enjoyed our trip there. The museum is free. It is defiantly a must do. During colder weather you can go inside the outside planes, but not during extreme hot weather, but it gets over 100 degrees inside the planes. So I will tell you if you want to tour the planes outside, go closer to fall.
  • The exhibits were great. Learned interesting facts. The volunteer tour guides were veterans who knew so much and were super friendly. Can't believe this museum is free and open to the public. What a wonderful resources. Plan to spend a couple hours on open cockpit )third Saturday) bring your own lunch and water. Indoor and outdoor exhibits.
  • Excellent way to spend some time to learn about USAF history. Their displays are top notch and the volunteers that work there are so knowledgeable! The gift shop is great as well. Love it.
  • As a Former Marine, enjoyed the USAF experience. My 4 year old granddaughter thought this was one of the world's greatest places. Airplanes, helicopters etc. MOH hall of Honor fantastic. Have met some of the men displayed. Recommend to any and all visiting, or coming through Dover Delaware.
