We were shocked by the lack of caring by the museum staff! Those planes need to be moved to a caring location!

I have been here twice. I think the museum is nice, they just need to dust off the aircraft and space the aircraft out better. The Grumman Avenger and F-86 Saber were highlights to me. Plus one of the museum staff let me pose with the planes for some cool pictures. Another thing that should be done is bring all the planes indoors, please.

We drove all the way to Liberal and were sooooo disappointed with this museum! I think hooking up with the KS Cosmosphere would help save this dead museum!

I had heard about thus museum for years and missed seeing it about 10 years ago. Well, now I know I hadn't missed much. It was interesting but the building is not air conditioned and I noted several planes had no information about them. There is nowhere near the 105 aircraft I was led to believe. Not by half. It was a little depressing, as another patron observed. The aircraft outside are in sad shape. The F-105 was especially so as it had just been restored 10 or 12 years ago. While a couple of the staff were nice, upon exiting the museum through the gift shop, the lady operating the shop seemed more concerned how I got in rather than treating me as a patron. She hadn't taken notice when I first entered and paid my fee. Several other staff seemed to care more about simply being employed than maintaining a museum & it's valuable exhibits. I think it would be best if this museum folded and the aircraft given to a museum large enough & well funded enough to maintain them in proper manner. At least dust them once in a while.

Does this place have a paid director? If it does then fire him, and get someone with vision! Soon!!!!!

My family stopped on our way home. The museum was dirty, and there was only an old lady running the gift shop...who didn't know anything about planes!! Who is running this place? Only in Kansas!!!!

A very good museum. I am particularly interested in general aviation, and that is the strong point of Mid America. It has many light planes including a good selection of homebuilts. It also has a few fine examples of WWII and Korean War Military planes as well as a few other military aircraft. Outside is a small collection of unrestored Cold War craft. The museum floor is a little crowded and you are not allowed to get very close to the planes, but the presentation is better than average. The place needs a good dusting. I visit as many air museums as I can, and this one is a good day trip if you are in the area.

We were going to Colorado and decided to stop. It is a neat ...but dead museum. We were the only ones there. No tour guides,and it was sad to hear silence. This museum needs to be moved to Hutch and hooked up with the Space museum!!!! GREAT IDEA!!!!
