I live in Papillion and didn't realize this museum even existed. After reading a few reviews and finding out what happened, I checkout their website and saw they just lifted the mast!

Wanted to go see the park and found it's been closed for some time. They still have the website up and it shows time and dates it's open. But the roads going to it are all blocked off.

Freedom park has been closed since the flood two years ago. I visited there the summer of 2010 when I moved to the area and fell in love with what a wonderful museum this is, and how open it is to the public. It saddens me to learn that there has been vandalism and theft from there. Does anyone know... More

We tried to get on from Freedom Park Road. It was blocked with concrete barriers and signs saying, "Federal Flood Control No Trespassing". I tried going in from the south over awful roads but the gate was closed. It WOULD have been nice if there had been some sign saying it was closed or even better notice on the web.... More

The Missouri River flood of 2011 hurt this place badly. The boat dock was wiped out, many of the ships and helicopters partially submerged by the river and now caked in mud. A barrier now sits in the middle of the road leading to the park - no signs of reopening.

My family and I loved how authentically open the collection is, it isn't behind glass windows or secluded to unclear view. We loved the fact that includes so much untold history. We enjoyed the visiting with the gentlemen, specially with Bill, who passed away a little while ago. Definitely worth visiting many times.

I like everything about our waters and what goes in them and on them. The history that is there makes my head spin.

Unfortunately, whatever has happended, it appears as though this is now being sadly neglected which is different since my last visit early last year. There are signs up to say the park is closed and equipment has been removed. It looks as though the adjacent river may have dried up as well as I am sure there used to be... More
