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).

  • 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.
  • We had a wonderful and informative visit today at the 30th Anniversary Festival of Flight. It was a great experience for our two grandchildren, ages 3 and 8. Everything was very well organized and the guides were very cordial and helpful. Thank you for the Bouncy Houses for the children and "Hats Off" to the food vendors on site. We're looking forward to another visit.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • This place is amazing, make sure you get there early enough to see everything inside and out. I'm amazed that's it's free and the staff there are very knowledgeable and friendly.
