My husband has been trying to get here for a whole now. It finally happened. I thought I would be bored, but it was wonderful.
The planes,of course, were his main interest, but the care put onto the other attractions was impressive. I loved the local focus of Ohio residents who served.
This place should be charging more than $15/person.

Have been there many times. Very impressed not only with the number of airplanes but also the exhibits about military life. The volunteers are very knowledgeable and friendly.

MAPS was excellent for the recent eclipse viewing. The staff is mostly volunteer, and are very knowledgeable. The collection of aircraft and memorabilia is wonderful. I especially liked seeing the F-14B on display. It appears the work hard on their restoration projects and keep their displays well cared for.

Fantastic place to roam around … nice collection and involved people over there!
All in all worth the time, money, or effort to make the trip and spent a whole day.
You definitely won’t regret it!

Good size military museum with friendly volunteer staff ready to field questions. Actually my favorite parts were (1) a Korean War medical tent, fully stocked and (2) the small Ohio Military History room upstairs that had showcases/uniforms for every war from the American Revolution onward…emphasis on gratitude for veterans.Mili My grandson liked sitting in helicopters and walking around bombers.

I would have given this museum five stars (Bubbles) if not for the fact that some of the airplanes had wooden ramps on both sides of them, making a decent photo impossible. There is no reason I can think of for people to climb both sides to look into the same cramped cockpit. As a matter of fact, some of the canopies were so discolored, there was nothing to be seen and photographed.

Other than that, this is a pretty good museum. One surprise was a gondola from one of the Goodyear blimps. They also had three different Soviet-designed MiG aircraft, but sadly no rare MiG-19. Their MiG-21 was unusual in that it had Chinese markings but the cockpit was in Czech (which I can read). A docent told me they did not know the province of the aircraft.

They have a decent Tuskegee exhibit, concentrating of course on an Ohio Tuskegee airman. There also is a lot of information about the contributions of women to the war effort during World War II. And do not miss the field hospital exhibit.

Upstairs in the hangar is the Ohio Military Museum.

If aviation or military buff it is worth the visit. Planes are mostly rejects from other museums. But a few you can enter. Military items are Ohio focused. Can cover in 2 hours.

Thank You for the review. Our aircraft come from many sources. Many are on loan from the military or military museums. None are rejects.

I took my wife and sister-in-law to visit this museum and their initial reluctance turned in amazement as the museum is not just planes on exhibit. The museum offers a variety of exhibits including a heroes room with stories and artifacts, an Ohio veterans room showcasing soldiers from Ohio who served in various periods of American history, and, yes, planes, engines, airplane memorabilia. They also have the gondola from the Blimp Akron. The folks there are friendly and engaging providing insight into the exhibits. It was a very enjoyable and educational museum.

Yes, I give this museum an Excellent rating but with one big question.. The day we were there, several volunteers were lovingly painting a few of the planes and performing maintenance. The love and respect for keeping this history alive shines through every exhibit. Before leaving I went to the ladies room (very clean) and much to my dismay, hanging on the inside walls were the beautifully designed glass plaques of female officers. I don’t remember all of them, but one was a Rear Admiral, I believe two were Three Star Generals and a few Two Star Generals. The plaques had their official military photo, a mini biography and several other pictures from their careers. As the spouse of a prior military member, I know how tough it was for these women to attain their rank and achievements. I’m sure they would be quite disappointed to know that these plaques are hanging right outside the stall doors in the BATHROOM!!
