Aviation museum receives Certificate of Excellence
The Museum of Aviation in Warner Robins was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for 2012 by TripAdvisor, a travel website.
With a rating of 4.5 (out of 5.0) the Museum of Aviation has earned a place among the very best, Christine Petersen, TripAdvisor business president, said in a news release. Last year, more than 600,000 people visited the museum, the release states.
This recognition is quite significant because it comes from unsolicited reviews by travelers themselves, Bob Dubiel, museum director of marketing said in the release.
