The goals of the Freedom of Flight Museum are two-fold.
The first goal is to develop a traditional aerospace museum, centrally located at the Joplin Regional Airport, that will provide a valuable educational, cultural and historical resource facility to southwest Missouri.
When fully operational, the interactive museum will provide a place to restore and exhibit examples of aerospace history from the four-state region of Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma. These exhibits will tell a story of history that began as far back as 1908, when two businessmen from Monett Missouri took the initiative and risk to commission the building of a biplane, a monoplane and an airship.
Our second goal is to provide a place for area youth to expand their knowledge and exercise their curiosity about science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) using hands-on aerospace activities provided by the museum. Field trips to the airport, after school programs, weekend projects, science fairs etc. are all in the planning stages.
