Liberty Aviation Museum Archives

Mission Statement 

The purpose of these online archive lists are to give access to the public of our paper archives for educational and research purposes. Liberty Aviation Museum is dedicated to providing historians, aircraft and vehicle preservationists, collectors and other interested individuals, information that is helpful in propagating the history of military and civilian aviation and modes of 

transportation in general. We work for the acquisition, restoration, operation, preservation and display of 

historic aircraft, vehicles and related items at the museum, with a heavy emphasis on public education.

Scope and Content

Our archives encompass five general areas of interest: 

  • Military Aviation
  • Civilian Aviation
  • General Transportation
  • Local/Regional History 
  • Northern Ohio Veterans' Oral Histories

You will also find a listing of the purchased/donated/gifted objects, relics, artifacts, photographs and more that have been cataloged into our museum's collections database that are available, offline, for research as well.

A portion of our archival collections came from papers that were a part of the Michigan Military Preservation Society collection in Grand Rapids, Michigan and were transferred to our museum in 2014.

The archival collections of the Liberty Aviation Museum are not digitized and are available for viewing at the museum only! However, the finding aid for each collection is what is uploaded to this website to give you an idea of what is available for research and educational purposes.

We encourage you and others to explore our collections to discover things new to you from the past!
