Lots of hands on things to do for your kids. Not overwhelming and large so you can see everything in a couple of hours. Very friendly people that work/volunteer there - eager to answer questions

Having seen the Air & Space Museum in Washington DC it is hard to go to other air museums. BUT, with that said, this is the little museum that could!!! They have great static displays and presentation displays of artifacts. Tour the inside hanger and see planes, models, blimp cabs and a whole lot more. They also have a great... More

My first time at MAPS. I was surprised a how much information was available for all ages. It will be a great place to take the grandkids when they are a little older. One more special place in the Cantonarea.

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
