About
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.

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.

Great collection
May 2021 • Family
A diverse collection of Ford Tri-Motor, war equipment, autos, Hollywood memorabilia and more. There is so much to see in this place! Many restoration projects in the works including a boat and plane! Allow enough time to see all the buildings and peruse the gift shop.

Stop at the Tin Goose Diner for dessert and watch planes take off and land. A great afternoon of fun. Perfect for all ages and interest levels.

Interesting!
Aug 2020 • Couples
We went to the museum to have lunch at the Tin Goose Diner not realizing they were so connected. After lunch we couldn’t help but want to explore the museum. The entrance area has a very cool retro feeling to it. Bathrooms are convenient and clean which is always a bonus! It was affordable to tour the museum which was full of interesting pieces of history. Loved the Hogan’s Heroes collection and the vintage flight attendant wardrobe. The big hanger where the restorations are going on is amazing. The hard work and care taken to bring back to life pieces of the past is great to see and watch! If in the area definitely check out the museum and the diner, you won’t be disappointed! Thank you to the staff for the wonderful job you do to restore history.

I still wonder if the museum is so great or we loved it so much because we had an amazing breakfast at Tin Goose Diner right before visiting... Anyway, put both on your bucket list!

Amazing place
Nov 2019
I was impressed with the sheer amount of military craft they had only display. There was so much to learn here, you can spend hours soaking up the history. Wish we could have eaten at the Tin Goose. the food smelled and looked scrumptious

So Much to See and an Amazing Gift Shop
Aug 2019
There is an amazing collection of aviation and local history well presented and maintained in this museum. On site historians and restoration personnel are available to ask questions and demonstrate their work. There is a tiny gift shop full of carefully selected items that appeal to all ages and interests. There is also a cafe on site.
