Freedom of Flight Museum

The Freedom of Flight Museum is a dedicated group of aerospace enthusiasts focused on stimulating an interest in aviation, history, space flight and technology in Joplin and the surrounding communities.

Our mission is to establish ourselves as an independent organization that will serve the public interest by providing:

  • Educational opportunities to area youth that will foster an interest in STEM subjects using aerospace related hands-on activities.
  • A museum that will work to acquire, restore, preserve and display aviation and spacecraft related artifacts.
  • Military service veteran recognition exhibits.
