The Liberty Aviation Museum is a newer "working" museum that opened in July of 2012 at the Erie-Ottawa International Airport (PCW Carl Keller Field) in Port Clinton, Ohio. Our museum consists of our B-25 Mitchell, WWII bomber "Georgie's Gal" built in 1945, recently restored by Aero Trader out of Chino, CA. Ground vehicles include a 1941 Dodge ambulance, 2 Jeeps, German 37mm AA gun, German Horch Truck, German Field Kitchen, German Kubel, 3 BMW Motorcycles, Tiger Tank Replica, Hetzer Tank Replica, Panther Tank Replica (currently undergoing restoration away from the museum), & 2 WWII PT boats under current restoration (The PT-728 Thomcat is currently on display while restoration work is being completed in the museum's new hangar expansion. The sister boat, the PT-724 is currently on display outside by the museum's second hangar. The PT-728 Thomcat will be available for boat experiences when restoration is completed. We have many items that are on rotating display that may not always been on display throughout the year during your visit. Please contact us if you are interested in viewing a specific item. On permanent display within our galleries is the WWII service uniform of actor Clark Gable. The museum also has 3 screen worn uniforms from the actors who played Col. Klink, Col. Hogan, & Sgt. Schultz from the TV show Hogan's Heroes. The Liberty Aviation Museum is also honored to have on display the Congressional Gold Medal belonging to 2nd LT. Aden Earl Jones of the Doolittle Tokyo Raiders. The coin was signed & presented to the museum by LT. Col. Richard E. Cole on April 22nd, 2016 at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force. Also, throughout the year we have many events such as big band hangar dances, Ford Tri-Motor rides, WWII era B-25, B-17, C-47, & AT-6 aircraft rides, Waco Biplane rides, concerts, books signings, car shows, and more. Please visit our website for more information!

Nice little museum. You get to learn some history, grab a bite to eat, and get ride on an old tri motor plane. The Tin Goose Diner at the museum has good food and plenty of it.

I read from one of the reviews that the tour takes about 2 hrs. Is that 2 hrs of walking or are there electric chairs or something available for those of us that can't walk that far or long? Thank you for your answer as this will determine whether we can make it.
