Mid-America Air Museum

2000 West Second Street
Liberal, KS 67901


Mid-America Air Museum is the largest aviation museum in Kansas and the fifth largest in the nation. It is home to more than 105 aircraft and serves as an interactive educational resource for all visitors.

Liberal, once home to a major Beech Aircraft manufacturing facility and a B-24 Liberator pilot training base during World War II, established the museum to help preserve a proud local and national aviation heritage. It is a vision started by the late Colonel Tom Thomas, Jr., who donated his personal collection of over 50 planes to the museum.

The museum interprets and preserves the history of flight through its collection of aircraft and related artifacts, its exhibits and its public programs. It strives for recognition as an outstanding air museum with engaging exhibits and a major collection of historically significant aircraft.

Independent visitors to the museum take self-guided tours. However, guided tours are available forschool, church, corporate and other tour groups. Special rates are available for groups of 10 or more. Tours must be booked in advance.

Two electric carts are available at no charge for use by elderly, disabled, or injured visitors.
