What a wonderful experience. I've been to the Wright Patterson museum, and MAPS is a miniature version physically, but just as entertaining and educational. It's more than aircraft, with many interesting displays of local soldiers and airmen as well as much military memorabilia. They have a gift shop there that has one of the best inventory of model kits of... More

Visited with my son and girlfriend this week. Not hard to find being it's right next to the Akron-Canton Regional Airport. Museum has aircraft and other artifacts mostly from WWII and the Vietnam War. Another feature is the Gallery of Heroes which is also worth a look. Staff was very courteous and the man working the register in the gift... More

We went with my WWII vet dad, my former aircraft carrier mechanic brother-in-law and a few others including a three year old. All of us, veteran and non-veteran, enjoyed ourselves. The volunteers were very knowledgeable and helpful. There were a few exhibits that kids and adults young at heart could climb in such as a gatlin gun, a blimp gondola... More

If you love any kind of airplane, you will love this. At least once a year a pancake breakfast is held. A good time to view all the contents for a good cause.

The guides there are very knowledgeable and one could spend hours there. Check out the newly acquired F4 Blue Angle Jet.

I took my father to the MAPS Air Museum. He has been several times but this was my first visit. I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys museums and/or history. I was surprised at how many planes and other aircraft on display. They offered a tour guide but we opted to tour on our own. The indoor hall of heroes... More
