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.
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.
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!
Brought my 3 and 7 year old. They enjoyed looking at all the planes. Especially the large ones outside. My only wish would be to be able to go in more of them. Best part is that it's free (donation optional)
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.
Great place to visit and see aviation history. I past the museum many time before, just glad we decided to check it out it was worth a visit.
It was very awesome nice to look at the air force base and learn about it!! You can also get inside the planes! And I Liked it
The open clockpit day was awesome! My husband and I could have stayed all day. The veterans/ tour guides and their personal stories made things come to life. The kids even did well for 3 hours.
Free to get in! Has wheelchairs available for use inside by restroom. Lots of great planes outside, mostly kinda old military planes like C130. Sometimes has cockpit tours. Inside the large hangar is displays on WW2 with tanks, suspended bombers, mannequins wearing uniforms, cockpits, etc. There is a gift shop that sells snacks, tshirts, sunglasses, toys, model planes, postcards, etc.
Beautiful museum.recently refreshed,exhibits are modern and we'll maintained.some unique and rare planes and items to view.id budget 3 hours to see most indoor and outdoor things. Free admission but you'll want to stuff money in the collection jar when you leave..great place for families too...
Wonderful experience for the family. Fantastic volunteers, friendly and knowledgeable!! Definitely recommend!
Phenomal Meusam, very imformative and helpful staff.
Cool place to spend a couple of hours of you love airplanes.
Went for our homeschool field trip. Learned a lot from our awesome tour guide. Loved the information we got about the cargo plane. Wow it hold 6 full size school buses.
This place and all the volunteers ....5 stars! Ed R. You gave us a terrific tour. Everyone is so helpful, friendly and knowledgeable.
A learning experience, simulator. The nicest people. History lessons. Toured aircraft. Highly recommend.
Wonderful place to visit. Thank you all for your service to the United States of America.
Loved this place , staff were very knowledgeable and gave myself and wife all the attention we needed without over doing it . A very excited UK visitor ...
That place is away and it's free!! Great place to bring the kids and family for a day out!
Great people doing great things
Shows a rich history of the AMC. It's a nice addition using retired Air Force Vets giving tours. Highly recommend for a family visit.
Wonderful history. Extremely friendly and knowledgeable volunteers!
Don Hall was amazing! This museum was astounding and the knowledge and passion the volunteers provide is top notch. What a wonderful museum to stumble across.
What a great time. It is run by volunteers, who are friendly and very knowledgeable. Can't wait to go back.
Great tours by veterans that flew and worked on the planes. Planning to go back again soon.
Well worth the time to stop and visit. Dozens of planes to view, interesting and informative exhibits.
Awesome place to come visit! One of the best attractions in Dover for sure. Open cockpit day (one Saturday a month) gets you into a ton of historic military planes including an old Air Force One jet. Free admission too for those who are on a budget.
Never been, never knew until today ! Definitely more than meets the eye ! A lot of neat & interesting history ! Will definitely go again !
The guides were awesome! The guide in the tower was funny, and very knowledgeable.
Very interesting. Would advise anyone that's been in another branch of the military to visit so they can understand the Air Force better. I was in the Army for three years. Now I can see the Air Force better.
Visited Fall of 2017. NOTE, we were planning to visit the museum again, but recently determined from their current FAQs that they do not allow dogs anymore. No more visits and no more substantial donations from us, because of the “NO PETS” policy. By changing policy on pets, they have now lost a valuable stream of revenue, from pet owners that travel with their pets. The past pet friendly policy was the main facilitating reason we visited, and could visit, in the past. ..... Review from 2017 visit follows: One of the best aviation museums. In 2017, and before, they allowed our two dogs, on leash, to go into the museum, a few planes, and the control tower. Many different aircraft and related equipment. All personnel were friendly and informative. An A+ experience.
It's free. And who doesnt love big planes. Sometimes they have the pilot room open also. If I'm correct once a month during their open schedule they have all the planes open.
I was surprised at how much there was to see. Great place with a lot of aircraft on display. They have special open cockpit days so I'll be back for one of those. Thank you Air Force.
With many variety of planes in the outdoors and exhibits and aircraft indoors this is a nice museum and it could be very very interesting and useful for those who are interested in aviation. In the planes some of the are guides are former technicians who are real experts about those planes and their history. And its a free of charge museum which makes it even more attractive especially when you think about museums what were just established to charge entrance fee. Museum is family friendly, families with young kids too comfortable visit this museum.
Lots to see! If you have any interest in planes you definitely need to stop here! All sorts of planes, helicopters and history to take in. Volunteers were all friendly and very knowledgeable. There are also flight simulators you can try!
Amazing place and if you have time, talk to the volunteers most of them are retired military members and have amazing stories.
Really interesting stuff and knowlegeable guide
Excellent display of U.S. military transport and logistics aircraft. From the C-5 to the C-47, it's all here. Unusual examples like the C-7 Caribou, and the Douglas C-133 are represented as well. The exhibits on display inside do well to explain the history of military air mobility, and also showcases a beautifully restored B-17G. Highly recommended for all aviation enthusiasts.
Great collection of transport aircraft from WWII to the present. Has a few fighter jets and helicopters too.
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.
This site upholds the level of professionalism of the military in the way they restore and display their aircraft. It is a must see for even the casual aviation buff. Every 3rd Saturday is when they have the largest number of aircraft open to go inside. The museum is free, but will take donations. A great view in to aviation history. The volunteers are awesome, and are available to answer your questions.
Amazing place to see our nation's air force history. So many different aircrafts to look at, and some you can even see the inside up close. As well as some information on the specific role each unit held in time.
What a great experience seeing all the planes used in WW2 and seeing Airforce 2.Also seeing things from the Vietnam war and Korean War.They also had a Memorial to the victims of the World Trade Center, The Pentagon and Flight 93.
Hidden jem of Delaware! It's the 2nd best free thing in the state!
Just seeing all the old planes and listening to some of the stories from the volunteers is remarkable. Very family oriented.
GREAT museum! Lots of historic planes and very friendly, informative veteran your guides. Definitely worth a visit and a great place for kids.
The kids loved it. Was lots of fun
Very well maintained, transport and fighter aircraft. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Any aviator well enjoy. Huge airplanes.
This is a very nice place. It's really nice to see all the planes and everyone that works knows everything about the planes. It was a great activity!
Open cockpit day. Great museum.
Very detailed! Professional, clean and polite staff would recommend to everyone.
We truely appreciated how many knowledgeable volunteers were there to open the place up to the public the day we were there. Gathered they only open the planes to the public on the third Saturday of the month and we happened to hit that day as luck would have it. The museum was pretty typical for a USAF museum in my experience (aside from the sheer number of aitcraft on display). The people made our visit enjoyable.
A wonderful museum. Highly recommend the tour.
Terrific museum with so many cargo planes on display. Definitely try to go on an "open cockpit" day when you can tour inside the planes. Amazing and fun experience.
WOW! This place is amazing! I really wasn't interested in visiting the museum, but my 14yr old son wanted to go. I reluctantly agreed; especially when he said that they offer FREE ADMISSION. I am SO HAPPY that I let him talk me into going. We met some VERY nice folks and saw some amazing aircraft. If you find yourself in the Dover area, you simply MUST make a stop here. It's well worth your time.
Great place to visit and learn about aircraft from various time periods.
A great and informative museum with multiple aircrafts open inside for tours
One of the BEST, the men who volunteer their time know what they are talking about and bring THE History of the pass to life. Would love to go back and learn more. God Bless those that served and those that gave their lives.,AMEN
Been here a couple times and it's a very good museum and to top it off it's free though donations are appreciated. They also have a 9/11 memorial with a couple pieces from Tower 1 and a rock from Shanksville and a wall block from the Pentagon. The planes on display are very well done and every third Saturday is open cockpit day where all the planes are open. It's a very good place to take the family and spend a couple hours.
Amazing display of military transport aircraft from over the decades to the present.
A nice place to go with the family if you love planes
Surprised by how much I liked it. Be sure to check out their open cockpit days.
Great place to learn about our airplane history.
We went on Open Cockpit Day and my 3-year-old and 6-year-old boys LOVED it! There are volunteers on or near all of the aircraft that will share stories and information - it's absolutely amazing! I highly recommend it!
Fun place with historical planes and volunteer tour guides
Great place to take in some history!
If you're an airplane and/or history nerd like myself, this is the place to go for some fresh air and to rack up a few steps on the pedometer.
Amazing collection of historical and current airplanes specializing in air mobility logistics and aerial refueling. You cannot appreciate the size of a C-5A Galaxy until you get up close to it and inside its cargo bay. I would like to thank Michael, Operations Manager, and volunteer docent Mr. Zuckerman for the personal tour. I highly recommend a day trip to visit this wonderful museum.
Small museum but constantly changing. Knowledgeable volunteer staff is always friendly and eager to teach kids about aviation.
Great place to visit with people of all ages. Great memorabilia and aircraft on display yet it's entirely FREE! But I would recommend you leave something in the donation box, though no one will pressure you to do so.
Love you guys! Semper Fi
If you love aircraft and air force memorabilia then well worth the visit. All the volunteers we met were wonderful. If you do anything in Dover it has to be the air museum
Great place for a family trip if you're interested in military history, or aircraft. Seeing these gigantic feats of engineering up close is really amazing, and the guides are super pleasant and helpful. And it's all totally free.
Great, my grandsons really enjoyed it, all the staff were courteous, helpful
Nice place. But there were no guides to show us around and they one we did find acted like they didn't want to help us
If you are a military airplane buff this should be on your list of to do places. Lots of cool original planes including a B17G, a C47, an original WWII glider, a C5 that you can go into, a former presidential plane and lots more. Did I mention it's free? No? Well it is free to visit. There is also a gift shop and a hall display showing various US military medal winners. A truly great place to visit.
Enjoyable, tour doesn't take that long..
This is a "must see" museum! All free of charge, but please donate. They also offer special events, & of course host the air shows.
A great place to visit have been there many times and will keep returning.
Loved our trip, took our little guy, he loved all the planes! So much history!
Sooooo many planes and jets. Guides are very knowledgeable. Make time to visit here, takes several hours
Had a great time and loved the displays! One volunteer was extremely rude to my family but I did not let it ruin my time and will definitely return...
It was very cool. Had lots of planes, inside and out. You can go in some of them, but you need a guide.
I am not a plane or military buff, so I didn't expect much. I was so pleasantly surprised. The inside museum had lots of very interesting displays and great explanations of the way people worked as part of the plane crews. We were able to go inside 5 of the planes outside. A retired military volunteer, Chuck Hastings (I think), was stationed outside of the Galaxy C-5 and he was terrific - so knowledgeable, personable, and welcoming.
Wonderful will go back again
Excellent all day!! Well done.
Worth the visit not because entrance is free you feel the how important it is to embraced the dedication and commitment how much effort our services gave and still providing, it's so important to understand the history before moving forward to present day and the advancements that provide a bubble of safety the visit is worth every min this is a must
Very nice.The volunteers are veterans& seem to truly care that you learn as much as possible. Some great relics and ships from the great war. A must see for anyone who has not visited yet & to top it off its free. Call ahead for best times & to be sure your visit will "be all it can be".
A walk back into the history of aviation. Great place to visit with kids. Former pilots lead tours inside the planes.
What great find! Free admission with lots to see! We will definitely be back and will try to go on a 3rd Saturday of the month when they have about 14 aircrafts open to explore. Today there were only 2 open. I'd also recommend finding a tour guide when you arrive. No one greets you to direct you where to go or how things work so we missed out on doing the command tower tour and access to a few other exhibits. Overly the kids had a great time and want to come back. You need at least a good 1.5-2 hrs to explore everything.
Great experience lot of history and insight into the airforce.
A fantastic museum free to visitors. Informative staff and unique aircraft. During my visit they set up a nice Christmas tree for the holidays. There is something special about smelling aircraft oil and evergreen trees. Perfect!
Awesome place helps tell the history of air force planes thru the years 75th anniversary of d day when we went .
Love all the friendly people that told us about the stuff on site.
Great place to relive history as told by the heroes of yesteryear. Air Force Vets volunteer their time to talk to the visitors about who / what this aircraft was all about. A very cool learning experience.... definately 10 Stars
Great place to see various aircraft close up.
Very nice displays of aviation history.
My boys and I always have fun here
We had an amazing time here. I hope the next time I'm in the Dover area, I'll have more time to spend here.
The people working there were very friendly and informative. Getting to see and get close to a lot these aircrafts was amazing. Great experience overall!!
Amazing free museum.
Great visit, we met friendly Airmans available to share stories and knowledge.
Very nice museum, free entry. So great to see a few planes from the inside. Gift shop was nice as wel and had reasonable prices.
Pretty damn awesome.
What a great visit!!!! Free but take donations or buy something in gift shop! Great for all ages and very interactive. Outside you can get inside all types of planes
Second time we've been here. You can easily spend hours here, there is a lot to see. Would highly recommend. Free to get in but donations are appreciated. Something to keep in mind: First time we got to go inside a few airplanes outside. Second time, it was too hot outside and we weren't able to tour them inside. Note: There is a small picnic area if you bring a cooler.
The tour guide Frank was amazing! Made everyone from the kids to the adults laugh from start to finish. Took his time with us and informed us on future events, including an aerial show in September.
Want to go back at my leisure and see some exhibits that I missed initially. The retired pilot tour guide was excellent and very patient with the Pre-K class I was with. Definitely a must-see !
Awesome, our kids loved it, and the tour guides are fantastic. Plus, it's free.
Really awesome place. The planes on display are amazing - you can even go on a tour inside a C-5 plane. There’s also lots of models of different weapons, and stories about different wars. The gift shop is really nice too. Definitely recommend this place.
This place is great. And the best part is that it's FREE. You should still donate anyway but that's your choice. Lots of cool planes to see and you can even go in a few, as well as many more outside. The staff is super friendly and it's a great place for kids. Plenty of parking which is also free.
It is great. All of the staff are super friendly and full of info. It's always free and some weekends they have open cockpits. Where you can actually get into some of the aircraft and sit in the pilot seat. Good for all ages. I took my 2 year son and he had a blast. It was good to see all of the vets there, still passionate about there history. They have a great gift shop with prices lower than expected. A wonderful place to go spend half a day or more.
Was a neat place to explore the plaes
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 place was awesome. So many mind blowingly large airplanes. Definitely worth the drive.
The volunteers still take ownership of these planes, very informative of displays and personal tales, the smiles on children flying the simulator.
Great place to learn about air mobility history admission and a personal tour guides are free weather you are two people or a group.
Great stop, free admission. Insodeamd outside stuff tosee. There are guides walking around, just ask one to show you inside a se select planes and they will. Kids and us enjoyed it.
They used to be pet friendly and now have a new commander who apparently doesn't care or like dogs . Would have been nice to know before taking that ride! Most of the displays are outside, Won't be visiting or donating or telling anyone this place any time soon. Good luck !
Always a treat to see the planes that flew over our yard when I was growing up. Very friendly staff and lots of history to discover. Although, I must caution it can get extremely hot on tarmac for the outside exhibits, plan accordingly.
Great little stop to visit. My husband and grandson were in seventh heaven here. A lot of Air Force history and actual planes to view and see take off and land. Doesn't cost anything. They do have a place for you to make a donation. Very worthwhile. One plane took off while we were there!!
Excellent staff and volunteers! I love visiting this Museum.
I love going here, I took my cub scouts here for open cockpit day! They absolutely love it as well as learned a lot..
Cool place. Good displays and knowledgeable guides. Couldn't get to outside displays due to weather but indoor still more than worth a visit. Gift shop nice as well. Will return if in area again.
This place is awesome, wish I could have spent a few hours. Free admission!
Great history of mobility aircraft.
Great place that is free to visit. Number of huge planes is unsurpassed and you have planes constantly landing over at the Air Force base. I have 3 young kids so didn’t have a guide show me around but they have guides showing people much more in detail. We stayed for about an hour.
Love this place. Come here every time we get to come from Sunbury pa to Delaware
Visited the museum for the first time today. We spent the majority of our time outside looking around. Ed R was the gentleman who showed us around and provided us with all the information about the planes. He absolutely went above and beyond showing my family around! We will most definitely be back because we still have the inside to explore. Wonderful place to bring children and learn some history.
It was cool to go up in the tower and get to see a c5 galaxy take off run way 1. Cool to see the inside of the large planes.
Great Air Force Museum! Very informative and ALOT of aircraft to view! One of the few aircraft museums that will let you go aboard some of the aircraft (but only if they have the volunteer staff to man that exhibit - per the staff that day). Definitely worth a trip to visit. Gift shop was full of relevant items at reasonable prices.
This is an incredibly stocked air force museum. They have several volunteers working as tour guides and our tour guide told us his stories in vietnam when applicable. Very cool exhibits, we got to walk into a lot of airplanes and the air traffic control tower and learned a lot. The aircraft restorers are mostly volunteers with some help from the base. If I could give more than 5 stars for this place I would, its definitely worth a stop!
An excellent insight in to heavy lifting, the unglamorous side of the airforce duties. An entirely free museum experience run by men and women who have served and can offer more than just a factual take on the displays.
Very informative about police officers who lost their lives equipment they had to use great education for children
Great indoor and outdoor museum. Lots of aircraft outside. Mostly transport. Some fighters. One WW2 A26 'bomber'. Inside they've got a B17, a C47, a WW2 glider and other aircraft plus cockpits from current USAF transports, e.g. C17 & C5. At least one flight simulator. There's a gift shop and snack bar. I go at least once a year.
Good time for the fam. Takes about two hours to walk through everything if you take your time. Maybe longer with a tour guide. Some stuff is unavailable without a tour guide.
This was well worth the 65 miles we drove from Ocean City, MD. Lots to see there. There are planes outside as well as inside, so you'll want to check the area forecast before going, unless you enjoy walking around in bad weather. A few planes can be toured. Plan on being there at least 2 hrs.
We're incredibly disappointed we under estimated this place prior to coming!! A must see!!. Spend the entire day!! The staff here are so knowledgeable and incredibly interesting. Thank you to all of those who shared their time with us today and for your service. Will be back!!
This place is seriously awesome
Our entire family enjoyed from age 3 year to 55 years old. The guides where friendly and very informative!
Tried to make it out to the National Museum ran out of time. This is the second best. Has a great selection of static aircraft. What makes this museum great it is located right beside the runway. We had the opportunity to see a C-17 doing touch and goes and a C-5 taking off. Just a great experience.
This place was amazing! And for it being free...even better. It is encouraged to leave tips. Seeing all the planes was fascinating. We had a tour guide (you don't have to have one) he was extremely informative. His name is Chet. Highly recommend asking for him when stopping by. There were some exhibits you needed a tour guide for. Not all planes were open to walk thru but some were. My favorite plane was The Air Force 2 plane. Highly advise if you're in the area yo stop by.
Free entrance and parking. Several aircraft can be boarded. Great couple of hours.
Awesome place!! Will be visting again soon!!!
Great place for a history lesson. Knowledgeable staff. Awesome for youth groups.
Very informative. Best air museum.
Great place to visit. Great guides go on open cockpit days see inside of planes
Volunteers are very informative and explain about the airplanes that are located on the base. Some even shared their stories of when they were in the war etc. Very fun place to visit especially if you have children. And it's free you cant beat that.
