Airport museum invites all ages to tour building


In remembrance of the attack at Pearl Harbor and America’s entrance into World War II, the Freeman Army Airfield Museum invites people of all ages to visit to see a slice of the history of our greatest generation.

The museum celebrates the fact that Freeman Field was a World War II multi-engine training base. There is a cornucopia of war artifacts, including some enemy ones. There also are two aircraft simulators for visitors to try and a gift counter.

The museum is at 1035 A Ave., Seymour, across the street from the Freeman Municipal Airport terminal building. There is no charge to visit the museum, which is open from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays and on other days by appointment. Donations are accepted to help cover operating expenses.

Anyone interested in visiting the museum outside of regular hours may call Tom Oktavec at 812-521-8831.
