Our Museum has been in existence for about 28 years. Best of ALL is that it is FREE!!! For the past several years, the Museum has been the most-visited FREE Cultural Attraction in the State of Delaware. We are one of the few aviation museums where visitors can actually tour the INSIDE of many aircraft. I have been a volunteer for the past 12 years. You can check us out on the web at: www.amcmuseum.org. We also have a FACEBOOK page - Air Mobility Command Museum - and a Twitter page -@AMC Museum. The Air Mobility Command (AMC) Museum operates as an aviation and aerospace, education, scientific, cultural, historical, and inspirational facility for the general public and the Air Force community. The objectives of the AMC Museum are to: promote and perpetuate the AMC Museum as a medium for informing and educating the public on the history and heritage of the Air Mobility Command, airlift and air refueling history, and Dover AFB; serve as a philanthropic corporation in assisting the development and expansion of the facilities of the AMC Museum; receive and administer gifts in the best interest of the AMC Museum; foster an understanding of our history and the legacy of those who came before.

We provide a setting where young people can learn about aviation and air refueling history and the history of Dover AFB through guided tours of aircraft and learning workshops. We also provide educational outreach, learning experiences through guided tours, hands-on exhibits of aircraft, displays, and lectures. On display is our aircraft collection of 30 airlifters, refuelers, jets, helicopters, and gliders.
