What is there to do?

Where do old airplanes go? The lucky ones go to the Air Mobility Command Museum! In fact, this popular Dover museum is the ONLY museum dedicated to airlift and air refuelling history!

Here, kids can come face to face with some pretty impressive aircraft, enjoy interactive fun, AND explore the exhibits that showcase the incredible history of aviation!

The Air Mobility Command Museum houses over 30 aircraft, all varying in their sizes, and the roles they played. There are cargo haulers, helicopters, fighters, and even a presidential aircraft! Yes, there is a bomber too. This museum has a little bit of everything and YOU can see them with your own eyes!

The exhibits within the museum are a great educational experience for the family. Here, you can learn all about the humanitarian and war efforts that both women and men undertook to help support the US Military.

There are exhibits detailing the airlift during the Vietnam War, as well as the Korean War.  The war history continues with an exhibit on Operation Vittles, and you can learn all about the Clark Airborne CA-1 Tractor!

If you want to climb inside an airplane big enough to swallow three buses you can explore the C-133. If aviation history is your thing, see several "First, Last or Only" aircraft from jet fighters to a WWII bomber complete with authentic nose art.

Ever wanted to experience what it's like to fly a giant airplane? Well, take a seat in one of their flight simulators. Junior aviators can "pilot" a mini-airplane to have their picture taken by mom and dad. It's all FREE from movies to guided tours!

A fascinating and educational look at the war-fighting and humanitarian effects they provide, plus free flight simulators for children 10 and up and a junior pilot's plane for a perfect picture opportunity for those 6 and under.
