About The Museum:

Museum ExteriorThe College Park Aviation Museum opened in 1998 and is an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution. The museum is a 27,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility located on the grounds of the world's oldest continuously operating airport in College Park, MD. The airport was founded in 1909 when Wilbur Wright came here to give flight instruction to the first military aviators. Visitors to the museum step into an open 1 1/2 story exhibit space, which highlights the display of unique aircraft and artifacts and tells the story of the airport's many firsts in flight to today. The museum gallery contains historic and reproduction aircraft associated with the history of the airfield, as well as hands-on activities and interpretive areas for children of all ages. Changing exhibits and new programs every month keep visitors coming back for more.

The place is a hidden jury. It contains my earlier plane models and any interactive gadgets. The place is clean. It is well maintained and stuff are very friendly. It also has great view -- the only barrier between the museum and airport lane is the museum glass wall. It as shame that too few people know this place.

Our tour guide Patrick was very informative, engaging and entertaining. The kids had a blast. Very clean and fun field trip. Not over crowded. Would definitely recommend going.

This is a Hidden Gem. It is a superb Museum with lots of activities and things to touch for kids up to the ages of 8. The gift shop here is very reasonably priced. The staffer extremely courteous and very helpful. The ticket prices are very reasonable at $5 for adults and $3 for kids.

This place has the most obnoxious photographer. Now I know why public figures get so irate with them. IF I WANTED MY PICTURE TAKEN, I'D ASK!!!
