Great place to visit! Went to kill some time while we were staying in Sandusky. Has a lot of cool planes and aviation memoribilia type stuff. I thought the coolest thing was that all the vehicles are worked on and put in working condition! Very interesting

Deborah Coatoam

If there is a wait, it goes quickly; food is amazing, good portions, great prices, wonderful service for Breakfast, lunch & dinner. Have been coming here since it opened. Everyone we send here has same views and are repeat customers as we are!

Matt Pannebaker

A great “living museum” of aviation and history of the Lake Erie Islands! The 50’s era Tin Goose Diner is the most immaculately clean restaurant I’ve been in, and serves great food with a view of the runway! Call ahead to see if the Ford Tri-motor is there, and maybe to find out what special restoration activities you might take part in. This is a great “one tank trip” for the family.

Jon Stawowy

If you like planes, this is a great local museum. My favorite is the Tun Goose Diner. This is an old 50’s Diner that serves really good food at a good price. If the museum is not your thing, the Diner alone is worth the visit.


Nice facility about everything aviation with a mix of antique vehicles. My favorite was the Tin Goose restaurant with good food, reasonable prices and aviation atmosphere. Located at the airfield.

rhonda reese

excellent place to take the kids very interesting Boys loved it

Brian Carnes

I'm not sure if it was the time of the year but there is a lot of unexplained clutter throughout and everything is packed in with limited signage. Lots of cool things to see tho and the flying planes are in amazing shape. It feels like right now you are just touring the workshop for what will be a much larger museum some day. Seeing the island airlines ford trimotor, even in stripped down shape was kinda cool for a kid who saw this plane flying so many years ago! There is no signage but it looks like the museum has a second vosper boat in the lot when they finish restoring the first. I hope they might restore this as a vosper boat and not as a stand in elco as the other! Worth your time, someday this place will be even more amazing!

Jerry Allgire

Good food.

John Thompson

Best be 25 exhibit I've seen

Jerry Lay

Great Island Airway historical display featuring the Ford Trimotor airplane. Local military history with static displays in hangar.

Lea Baron

Very unique with a variety of artifacts

Christina Dunaway

Nice little museum a lot of WW1 and WW2 artefacts. Super interesting to learn about the Tim Goose and how it opened up the Lake Islands for tourism and supplies.

Suzanne Smith

It's kind of funny that they call it an aviation museum. It was mostly war vehicles and boats, lol! Only a handful of planes. However, the Goodyear blimp bus & retro camper were cool. Unfortunately, many of the interesting items on display were not even labeled so you didn't really learn anything. For example: a smaller version of an old fire truck that said "Oz" on it. Was it used in the movie in 1939. Who knows???

James Guilford

This is a fine, small museum of particular interest to World War 2 aviation buffs. Many model aircraft are on display along with other authentic items of interest. The centerpiece of the collection is a magnificently restored (flyable) B-25J Mitchell Bomber, "Georgie's Girl," we found parked in the museum's cluttered but immaculate hangar. Visitors can get up close to see but not touch the airplane. The museum is also home to the Tri-Motor Heritage Foundation's restoration project and many displays addressing the history of the Ford Tri-Motor. Sharing the hangar with the B-25 was a Tri-Motor stripped to its shining metal skeleton, undergoing a loving rebuild. The museum's small diner was also bright, clean, and inviting offering clear views of the adjacent airport and its activities. Admission is by donation and the minimum $5 requested is fair for all -- give them more to support their work!

Melinda Jones

Good local interest and WWII displays.

Eric Hess

Amazing. Worth stopping. The diner has great food.

shane dailey

They have some really nice pieces to see but there's no interactive pieces and there's not really a lot there.

bella starr

Eric Sample

Nice, very interesting

Scott Salem

Stopped by Liberty Aviation Museum in Port Clinton, Ohio. My family and I had a great time. Plenty of people willing to answer questions about the exhibits. The planes, trucks, equipment and exhibits were excellent! I personally wanted to visit to see the progress of the restoration of the PT Boat 728 "Thomcat". The Museum is planning on making it a fully functioning PT boat to eventually allow the public to get rides on it. They have an authentic 1950's style diner connected right to the museum the Tin Goose Diner. We had lunch right there and the food was great! I highly recommend a visit if you plan on being anywhere near Port Clinton!

Joe Callehan

A lot of the items at this Museum reminded me of things my father used to own he also was an aircraft mechanic and spoke about the engines that are on display I enjoyed it

Chris Letham

Awesome museum. Worth the time to take the tour.

Troy Estep

Awesome place


Awesome place, whole bunch of different vintage aircrafts. Lot of information

Exceeded expectations. History and aviation buffs alike will find a number of exhibits fascinating. The museum is spread out into 2 large hangars physically separated requiring walking outdoors.

We went in July, to the museum and the diner we loved it. My grandson LOVES planes and history so he was in heaven. We plan on going back probably next year. The staff is amazing also!!

Paul Blaho

Nice place worth a visit.

Warren Wallace

Great museum and the staff is helpful and knowledgeable!The Tin Goose has good food also!!

Wildcards Rex

We stopped off to the Liberty Aviation Museum in Port Clinton, since my wife and I love history, especially military and aviation history. This place was great. I absolutely loved the Hogan's Heroes display, of original costumes and props. There's a looping video about Milton Hershberger and his business flying Ford Tri motor planes. It was well worth the time to sit-n-watch. The museum had had an event going on so most of their aircraft were stored other places. However, what was on exhibit, was pretty cool. The B25 and the collection of Jeeps were my favorite. I highly recommend going to the museum if you are in the Port Clinton area. Not CCW friendly

mark bushroe

Excellent place to visit.

Paul Philippy

Awesome smaller aviation museum. I recommend going if you're in the area

Catherine Case

Put this on your to do list. Don't miss it

Rachel Keckler

For the price and friendly staff, it was a great couple hours spent! I would suggest only bring "double digit" aged kids (10 or older), as it is a "look-don't touch" museum. A lot to look at and a great old style diner right next to the runway. A good sized burger and chips was 5.75 (couldn't beat the price)! Restrooms we're very clean and well kept throughout!

Joyce Wilhelm

We thoroughly enjoyed walking through this museum. Worth the money and loved the well displayed exhibits. I do believe my hubby may want to come back to volunteer next year restoring a plane. Lol come out and support the efforts of this museum.

Jeff Barton

Good museum to visit while in the area. Rides on vintage aircraft available during the spring and summer. Enjoyed the Ford trimotor flight.

Kimberly Hunt-Brown

Great unique museum. If you enjoy aviation history, this is a super stop for you!

Fred Svensen

This is Port Clinton's best kept secret. The displays they have are first class and the artisans restoring an actual Ford Tri-motor AND a PT boat are incredible. This is a must see museum.

A Google User

Awsom time

Thomas Durdella

Great museum featuring military and civilian aircraft. Local history is spotlighted with the Ford Tri-Motor restoration. Flights on an operational Tri-Motor are available a few weeks throughout the year - beautiful view of the islands from a nearly hundred year old plane. Grab a bite to eat in the restored 1950s diner attached to the museum when you're done!


Keeping history alive

Don Lee

From flying planes to a restoration project you can watch happen, this place is a wonderful repository of aviation, military and local history. Add in a top-notch diner and an active airport right there, and it's a combo well worth a return visit, and another ...

Deb Morrison

Very nice

Aaron Gordon

Will always support an aviation museum but honestly there's not much to see here. Would be a lot of fun to actually fly in and grab a meal at the dinner but not much here. Still get out and support these people preserving awesome pieces of history like this one!

Kirk Smith

Very knowledgeable people, willing to share their expert information on the exhibits there.

Bob Kurtz

Wow the planes and vehicles

Armeda Reitzel

My husband, my brother, and I all agree: The Liberty Aviation Museum exceeded our already positive expectations. After reading all of the five star reviews, we were prepared to spend at least an hour there. We ended up spending nearly two full hours at the museum because of all of the interesting exhibits and the friendly staff who shared additional information about the planes, tanks, boats, and cars. What a terrific array of historical vehicles and artifacts, both American and foreign! All three of us enjoyed the "Hogan's Heroes" display since it brought back fond memories of the popular 1965-1971 television series. We learned so much. We are still talking about our afternoon at the museum four days later! The price of admission is more than reasonable. Would I go back again? Definitely! Two thumbs up for this very special museum!!!

Martha Torrico

Not only did we get a group discount we got our own personal tour guide who was very knowledgeable and awesome so many different things to see from history I highly recommend if you are in the area. We took back memories and knowledge of a lifetime with us.

Denny Levally

Very clean and spacious. A great place to visit!

Terry Jones

I love it

Don Wonnell

Have ridden a Tin Goose in 1940, 1941, 1942 and yesterday (9/7/19). A little freaky at first because I've had a real balance problem since an illness I was 6, but a real blast. Takes off fast, must be more powerful engines now, fantastic view. If there was 6 stars it would get that.

Bailey D. Steel

Great place to visit. Been to several events here and they are well organized and everyone always has a great time!

Very cool place, learned a lot of stuff. Great diner, not only planes there but also boats like the pt boat. They have two of them and there are only 5 in existence!

Holli Gray-Luring

Wonderful place, can not wait to return! We traveled an hour to visit this museum. Our three year old son is obsessed with airplanes so we thought this would be a good Saturday day trip. We arrived and it was closed. A kind man that was at the museum shoveling snow kindly invited us in and showed us around one is the hangars. He was full of knowledge and excitement, couldn’t have asked for a better blessing that day. We are looking forward to our next visit. This museum has done an outstanding job restoring their planes and with keeping such a beautiful establishment for the displays of these planes. Our next visit will included eating at the diner.

Lana Pfeifer

Great museum really interesting to see the planes, military, and Titanic items

Vickie Laurents

Near small local airport,some items in museum donated by locals but noted by others.the growth and history surrounding development of airport is not provided. But the place it's self is very nice and there is a small cafe on property. Large gatherings during airshows.And history of some aircrafts available.

Ashley Armstrong

We visited today for the first time looking for some extra stuff to do while on vacation. There was so much to see. A great place to visit if you love planes or WWII. Extremely friendly staff. Also a great retro restaurant attached, Tin Goose Diner, would recommend visiting as well because the food was delicious.
