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.

Family had a lot of fun here. It's a little small and could use some updates. If you're in the area give it a look and help support history.

I love this park for small kids under 10 because of the hands on activities. I wish they would work on having more diverse exhibits about aviation. Not much on women in the field.

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.
