MAPS Air Museum is renovating a large room that will house the collection from the Ohio Military Museum. It will be located on the second floor of the main hangar. The major delay was due to the requirement to install an elevator which was recently approved by the State of Ohio.
We have modified the website under the tab of displays to include some renovation pictures for the OMM Room. You can click HERE to go to the pictures.
We still have some renovations to finish and some cabinets to build before we turn it over for the collections to be added. Hopefully, they will be able to start installing the displays in May.
Collings Foundation 2017 “Wings of Freedom Tour” will once again come to MAPS Air Museum. We have been added to their tour on August 11 – 13, 2017.
