The Liberty Aviation Museum is located in Port Clinton, Ohio, United States, adjacent to the Erie–Ottawa International Airport.
The Liberty Aviation Museum owns a 1928 Ford 5-AT Tri-motor, currently operating with the Experimental Aircraft Association for the Fly the Ford tour. The Tri-Motor Heritage Foundation is also based at the museum where some volunteers of the EAA Chapter 1247 are restoring an Island Airlines 1929 5-AT Ford Trimotor.
Also at the Liberty Aviation Museum, is the Tin Goose Diner. The diner is a vintage 1950s O'Mahoney diner, originally operating in Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania under the name of Sunrise Diner. The Diner became a permanent addition to the Liberty Aviation Museum in 2012.
In 2015, the museum won a lawsuit against Treasure Cove Marina, arguing that they were overcharged for the restoration of their PT-boat.
