Our museum preserves, protects and displays artifacts from the WWII era, covering the time period 1942 through 1946. Freeman Army Airfield performed two distinct functions during those years; training bomber pilots for the US Army Air Corps in 1943 and 1944, and acting as the Foreign Aircraft Evaluation Center in 1945 and 1946.
We have two buildings, about 3000 square feet each, located across the street from the terminal building at Freeman Municipal Airport in Seymour, Indiana. Both buildings are wheelchair accessible and ADA compliant. Admission and parking are free; donations accepted. There are a wide range of exhibits, which include firearms and edged weapons, a Link Trainer (WWII flight simulator), a modern electronic simulator that guests can “fly”, and the original base fire truck, in roadworthy condition. While we don’t have any whole airplanes, we do have numerous aircraft engines and propellers from WWII, and many parts, large and small, from enemy aircraft that were here right after the war ended.
We welcome groups and other organizations. Our media room seats 28, and there is a conference area for 10 people. Have your meeting, in conjunction with a museum tour, at our facility. A full tour takes about 1.5 hours. We are open every Saturday from 10AM until 1PM; other times by appointment.
