Event Date: Saturday, 26 March 2016 at 9:00 a.m.
Location: Air Mobility Command Museum
Address: 1301 Heritage Rd, Dover AFB, DE 19902

Whether you collect things yourself or just want to see what others collect, you should come to the AMC Museum on March 26th for our 14th Annual Collectors Day. This free event is open to everyone. You can bring your own collection of sports memorabilia, Beanie Babies, or early American currency.  This family-friendly event may leave you scratching your head, or it may remind you of some hidden treasures packed away in your attic. In either case, come on out and join the fun.

Over the years participants have shared collections of turn-of-the-century post cards, WWI uniforms, pocket watches, trench art, model aircraft engines, and sunflower jewelry. All Delmarva residents are encouraged to bring their favorite collection to the museum and share it for the day, or just drop by and check out everyone’s personal collections.

You may discover someone shares your interest or you might find a new hobby. For additional info call Mr. Paul George at 302-677-5991. Free table space may be reserved in advance. You can receive a table registration form by clicking here, emailing museum@us.af.mil, or stopping by the AMC Museum.

There will be prizes for best overall exhibit and most unusual collection. Set up starts at 7:30 a.m. and doors open at 9 a.m. Tear down is at 3 p.m. No weapons or inappropriate material.

Open Aircraft Day

Open Cockpit Day

Event Date: Saturday, 21 November 2015 at 10:00 a.m.
Location: Air Mobility Command Museum
Address: 1301 Heritage Rd, Dover AFB, DE 19902

The Air Mobility Command Museum is starting its 2016 Open Cockpit Day on Saturday, March 19. This event is repeated every third Saturday of the month through November.

Open Cockpit Day provides the public full access to many of the museum’s aircraft from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. if weather permits and tour guides are available. Tour guides are stationed in the open aircraft to describe the history of the planes and their missions. They are often retired crew members of these airplanes so their descriptions are from personal experience and bring the aircraft to life for visitors.

For more information please email Mike Leister, Director. You may request a tour of an aircraft on a day other than Open Aircraft Day by emailing Paul George, Tour Scheduler. (Aircraft that may not be toured: A-26, B-17 (physically fit DVs only), C-45, CG-4A, HH-43, F-101, F-106, TG-4, BT-13, PT-17, and T-33)
