I love this museum. Its a bot off the beaten path and seems as though many do not know it exists. Stop here if you can and spend a few hours.
My family and I loved the museum, but a word of advise, whatever the temperature is outside expect the same inside the hanger. But it was so interesting that we plan on returning when it's a bit warmer.
After hearing about MAPS for years from friends, we went there for my wife's birthday as part of a tour of a marathon two days of four Canton museums.

My father traveled to the Canton-Akron OH area to visit the Pro Football Hall of Fame. We stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn Akron-Canton Airport.

The displays are quite interesting. All restoration is done by volunteers. There are opportunities [and steps] to go right up to, and peek in, many of the planes. You can even go... More
Wanted something to do in the area with college age kids. I figured our visit would last less then an hour but we spent over an hour and a half looking at the exhibits and planes. We've been to Wright and the D.C. air museums but this is one of those little museums that are a real labor of love.... More
