History Buffs Will Love The Airplane Tours Offered At This Unique Delaware Museum
Have you ever wondered what it was like to take to the sky during World War I, World War II, or any of America’s modern wars? In Dover, you can tour fascinating, historic aircraft that fought for our freedom and hear first-hand experiences from the veterans that crewed them. The Air Mobility Command Museum on the Dover Air Force Base is one museum that everyone in the state will absolutely love.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
The AMC’s Open Cockpit Days are the best time to tour, and there are three left for the year! Join the Museum’s tour guides on August 18th, September 15th, October 20th from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. (weather permitting) to learn about the most fascinating planes to ever take flight. Guides will be waiting for you in open aircraft and will tell you their stories. Many of the tour guides are retired crew, so you’ll get a truly personalized experience when you hear their tales. Point your GPS to 1301 Heritage Rd., Dover AFB, DE 19902 and look out for the brown signs that point the way to the Museum’s gated entrance.
