  • This far exceeded my expectations. The planes, helicopters, and extensive other exhibits were fantastic. We had a guided tour by Bill Cody (He works Wednesdays). He shared an incredible amount of knowledge over the course of our 2-3 hour tour. He was full of interesting facts and lots of stories. We had several children in our group and they really enjoyed it as well. Highly recommend and ask for the tour guide!
  • Super friendly staff, free knowledgeable tour guide. Super reasonable cost of admission. Excellent displays and variety of aircraft for a smaller museum. Definitely worth the visit.
  • Great tour guides or you can walk around on your own. Have been there a few times and has not ever been crowded.
  • Blimey!! This is a "faire dinkum'" place mates. If any of you blokes ever get to the Akron Canton Ohio area it is definitely worth the trip, especially for any of the US Military personnel or veterans.
  • As I walked among the military air craft, I thought of the brave men who flew these awesome aircraft. Protecting our country. The Maps Museum gives you a little history in different branches of the service, with there guided tours. GREAT!!
