“home to more than 100 aircraft”
The Mid-America Air Museum in Liberal, Kansas is one of the country's largest air museums and home to more than 100 aircraft. The museum's collection was started by the late Colonel Tom Thomas, Jr., who donated his personal collection of over 50 planes to the museum. It is an impressive display, although the airplanes feel more crammed into the hanger than displayed. I believe that the typical visitor will find the Air Musem is good for about an hour's visit. But with more room, better organization and more historical information, the Mid-America Air Museum could be a regional travel destination. Guided tours are available for groups of ten or more at special rates. Group tours must be booked in advance. Electric carts are available at no additional charge for those requiring mobility assistance. Camp Falcon at the Mid-America Air Museum is a seven-week summer educational program for children ages 8-12. Campers learn about the history of flight, the scientific principles behind flight, perform experiments, make models, and conduct test flights.
We have been to the museum a number of times. They have great exhibits and they move things around so you see something different each time. They are also adding lots of neat activities like a lunch and learn and movie night. And they are doing work in the lobby and the exhibit as you enter the museum.
That is on top of all the amazing things they do for young people. Robotics, legos, creative ways to learn for all ages.
We go at least once each time family visits.
