2020 Veterans Day

Veterans Day is a time to remember that the freedoms we enjoy as Americans have come with a price, and have been earned and perpetuated by the brave men and women who have answered the call to duty for their country. Without their dedication and sacrifice, America would be a very different place today.

2020 Tripadvisor Travelers' Choice Award

Tripadvisor Travelers’ Choice Award

The Air Mobility Command Museum has once again been awarded the Tripadvisor Travelers’ Choice Award, honoring the Travelers’ Choice, Best of the Best, representing the most exceptional, highest-rated properties around the world. These businesses are among the top 10% of all listings on Tripadvisor. The award singles out not just popular choices, but truly exceptional ones that travelers keep coming back for, and is the highest honor Tripadvisor can bestow. Based on millions of reviews and opinions from travelers from around the world, this annual award recognizes the very best tourism establishments in terms of service, quality, customer satisfaction and more, across a range of categories. This is proof that we have a world class museum right here in Dover, Delaware.

The award is a testament to our amazing Museum Team. “Special” is over 100 dedicated volunteers that provide thousands of hours restoring history, provide educational tours and outreach, sell a souvenir in our gift store, modernize our research library, schedule military ceremonies, keep the museum in tip-top shape, and perform many other duties for everyone to enjoy the museum.

This would also not be possible without you, our fabulous visitors from across the globe taking the time to review and comment on your experience while visiting the Air Mobility Command Museum.

On behalf of the entire Museum Staff, thank you to all who have helped make this possible, and we look forward to seeing you soon!
