    Hi – Was there many years ago with our local Boy Scout Troop – it was fantastic. Will be in the area around the end of September and planning on stopping in for my husband to see. Have there been any updates regarding restrictions or are you still in Stage 2?

    • AMC Museum


      We are still in phase 2 and we’re not sure when phase 3, reopening the interior of the museum, will occur at this time.

    Is the outside aircraft ramp vulnerable to weather? Such as rain. If it rains is there cover?

    • AMC Museum

      Hi Edward,

      There is no immediate cover to protect yourself from the rain, unless you’re okay with hiding underneath one of the several wings on the ramp.

      Please check the weather forecast ahead of time and dress appropriately. If rain is suspected that day it wouldn’t hurt to bring an umbrella.

  • Is the museum opened to the public/ civilians?

    • AMC Museum

      Hi Ilene,

      Yes, the museum is opened to the public. Access to the museum is only possible on Route 9. You cannot get to the museum by going on base. Please browse through for more information.

  • Hi, can we go inside of the aircraft that are located outside or just look at them from the outside? Thanks!

    • AMC Museum

      Hi Anne,

      You can only observe the aircraft from the outside during phase 2.

      Thank you for your question!

  • Julie Heintzelman

    Is there any potential dates yet for a full reopening?

    • AMC Museum

      Hi Julie,

      It is difficult to say when we’ll be fully reopened and back to normal at this time. We’ll get a better sense of when that date will be once we’re through the upcoming reopening phases. Sorry!
