Air Mobility Command Museum

1301 Heritage Road

Where do old airplanes go? The lucky ones go to the Air Mobility Command Museum—the only museum dedicated to airlift and air refueling history! The museum houses over 30 aircraft varying in roles and sizes. Cargo haulers, fighters, helicopters, a presidential aircraft, and even a bomber; the museum has a little bit of everything!

The museum houses over 30 aircraft varying in roles and sizes. Cargo haulers, fighters, helicopters, a presidential aircraft, and a bomber. The tour guides are ex service members, very friendly, helpful and gave great personal recounts of the planes and restorations. Admission and parking was free. Definitely give a donation. Has a nice gift shop. If you are visiting Dover i would say this is top 3 attractions if not #1

This free museum- open to the general public- showcases many special military airplanes- mostly transport planes. The guides and volunteers are all ex-servicemen who have extensive knowledge of the planes. Well worth the visit- you will definitely spend more time here than you would expect.

This was an awesome experience. It was free admission so that was great, and my boys love airplanes. I couldn't think of a better place to take them. You can schedule a free tour to go inside the planes and other exhibits. The down side is the 53 min ride from Wilmington.

Free! I think the AMC Museum has the largest collection of military transport planes in one place. The rules for the planes at the museum are they must be transport planes and/or planes that were of the type stationed at Dover Air Force Base. One of the most awesome things at the museum is the fact that they have "open cockpit" day once a month where you can actually tour a plane right up to visiting the cockpit. I don't know of any other museum that does that. Plus, they have tour guides who are knowledgeable about the planes because most are retired military folks that actually flew in the planes. So you're going to get a tour that not only presents the basic facts, but can go into much greater detail based on your preference. This is one museum that is worth more, much more, than the price of admission (free). I highly recommend going to check this museum out, but be prepared to spend a few hours or more looking at the planes, talking to the tour guides, and learning how some of your tax paying dollars were spent on keeping this country free!

Located on the south side of Dover Air Force Base, but you don't need to go through a gate to enter the Museum. And it's free. Loads of displays inside and out, so this could easily be a rainy day activity for you and your little ones. Go through it as quickly or as slowly as you'd like. Plenty of folks around to answer questions, if you need them.
