  • It is the first time I have ever been in a World War 11 plane. This was an airport for the our war planes. The museum was very interesting with real equipment that the men had in the war. A great history place.
  • Really neat place to stop. Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable
  • Amazing place to take a step back in time. The museum is great and you can walk around following the lettered historical markers.
  • Great museum with displays and a self guided driving tour of the world War 2 airbase. There is a gift shop with tons of cool stuff and the restored dance hall is super cool.
  • This small but interesting museum is worth a visit for any WWII history buff. During WWII this airbase is where the flight crews trained for the bombing missions over Hiroshima and Nagasaki, including the crew of the Enola Gay. Inside the museum there are old photos and timelines featuring the history of Wendover Airfield and models of the Enola Gay. There's even a replica of the Atomic Bomb called Little Boy. I especially enjoyed seeing the old photos featuring the flight crews and reading their stories and recollections.
