Air Mobility Command Museum celebrates the rich heritage of the United States Air Force, highlighting the stories of men and women who have flown and maintained military aircraft. Located inside one of the hangars of an operational Air Force base, the museum features a collection of 30 restored aircraft. To learn the little-known facts behind these historical airplanes, take a tour of the hangar with one of the volunteer guides, (many of whom are retired pilots, flight engineers, and navigators who participated in actual events involving these craft). Before you leave, stop by the museum store to find Air Force-themed caps, T-shirts, and patches.

  • Visited the museum for the first time today. We spent the majority of our time outside looking around. Ed R was the gentleman who showed us around and provided us with all the information about the planes. He absolutely went above and beyond showing my family around! We will most definitely be back because we still have the inside to explore. Wonderful place to bring children and learn some history.
  • Very nice.The volunteers are veterans& seem to truly care that you learn as much as possible. Some great relics and ships from the great war. A must see for anyone who has not visited yet & to top it off its free. Call ahead for best times & to be sure your visit will "be all it can be".
