The front hall has pictures of all the Medal of Honor recipients with a brief description. The museum has tours of old and new planes, the old control tower and other artifacts from the Air Force. All the tours are run by vets. Great place.

What a fantastic facility. The volunteers were retired military who had a real handle on military history. There was a ww1 plane hanging from the ceiling. They covered many generations of military history. Very interactive for kids. Recommended stop in Delaware.

Can here with my boyfriend and my mother thinking it would be a quick trip, but we actually got a free tour with a very educated tour guide! Even got to do a flight simulation and go inside of the planes they have on display!

Being in the USAF Reserve, I'm a bit partial to my branch of the military. You will be amazed at the amount of personnel, supplies and equipment the USAF can move around the world at a short notice. The museum is free and only asks...More

A nice museum that is free and you don't need a gate pass to visit it like some other military museums. I met several very friendly docents. My only complaint is that their Air Force UH-1N helicopter on display is really an ex-Army UH-1H. One...More
