The Service Club building has been restored and is now open and I understand that exhibits are in the process of being transferred over from their current location. The site is a bit scruffy, but clearly an ongoing labor of love and well worth a visit.

This was our second visit to the Historic Wendover Army Airfield. It is a work in progress and they go out of their way to make you welcome. If you are interested in the history of the Enola Gay and the U S Army Airfield, you will greatly enjoy this museum. We are looking forward to visiting again the see... More

We were flying in a twin engine and landed at Wendover Airfield (on our way from Denver to Mount Shasta in California) for fuel and a bathroom stop. I was unaware of the history of this place. It was an Army Air Corps base in WWII with over 18,000 personnel (and more recently part of the movie "Independence Day" was... More

During our visit to Wendover for Bonneville, we decided to call in at the museum. It is on the outskirts of town, in a clapboard, picturesque building and manned by volunteers. What was there was interesting, but there was no one around or even indeed interested in our being there and any questions that we may have. Disappointing.

We were passing through Wendover to see the Bonneville Salt Flats and thought a visit to the airfield would be an added bonus but it turned out to be the other way around. I think the museum is staffed by volunteers. It's free to enter but there's a donation box (a cut open bomb!). A volunteer told us "it takes... More

This was a training base in WWII and the displays and pictures inside are terrific! A must see if you are visiting the Bonneville Salt Flats or Wendover Nevada. No fee to enter, but there is a donation box. We all (4 of us) donated. What a great little place!

Even if your not that into history the Wendover Airfield museum and grounds are amazing. Take the time to stop in and visit this site dedicated to the men and women that helped end WWII. Great displays of what the base looked like in the early years. Once the restoration is complete this site will be even better.

We stopped here on a whim. They are in the process of restoring the hanger, and parts of the air base. Good for history buffs. If you don't know history, you are going to be bored. Safe travels! -Pete and Chelly

So excited about the renovation being done to restore the building to their original condition. They museum is being moved to the Officer Club which is so much larger and will allow for more exhibits. If you haven't visit it it's a must. This is part of American History and needs our support!

This is a great place to get a feel for what it was like during WWII. This airfield is still in service for some aircraft and refueling. But this is where the Army Air Corp practiced with the Enola Gay to drop atomic bombs. I know some people will feel that this is not something that should be remembered or... More
