Dyess Memorial Museum and Dyess Linear Air Park

  • Arnold Blvd. & Military Dr.Abilene
  • 325-696-2099
  • Attractions

Abilene is proud to serve as home to Dyess Air Force Base, housing the 7th Bomb Wing with two B1-B Lancer squadrons and the 317th Airlift Group with two C-130 squadrons. The museum features many exciting artifacts regarding the life of Lt. Col. Dyess and the history of Dyess Air Force Base and Abilene Army Airfield. The Air Park has 34 US Air Force and Army Air Corps historic aircraft on static display along a linear path that will take you through SAC aircraft, cargo planes, fighters and more. 

  • Guided tours of the Linear Air Park inside the Air Force base can be requested from 8 am to 2 pm weekdays.
    • Stop at the Museum at Arnold Blvd and Military Drive and the Museum Curator will summon the Air Park Curator to help guests enter the base. (The staff arrives at 7:30 am.)
    • It is suggested to call the Museum at 325-696-2099 to begin the initial process for the Guided Tour. Current policy to enter Dyess AFB is as follows:
      • If a guest lives within 75 miles of Abilene, a short Health and Wellness Questionnaire will be conducted at the Pass & ID Desk (Visitor Control Center co-located inside the Museum).
      • If a guest resides outside the 75 mile zone, they will need to be pre-screened by the Dyess Medical Public Health Section. That pre-screen must be conducted within a 72-hour period prior to entering the base (it can be done the same day as the tour). The primary focus of this pre-screen is to exclude individuals residing or coming from a highly-infected region. Each person in the tour group needs to be identified during this pre-screening process.
  • Keep one open seat in your vehicle for the Air Park Curator to accompany guests for a guided tour.
  • Facemasks are encouraged.
  • Groups can be no larger than 5 adults.
  • Enjoy seeing the largest static display of historic aircraft in the country.
