I recently went here with my kids, and had a tour guide talk about the history of the museum and aviation. He was very informative, and I think you'd need a guide to be able to fully enjoy the artifacts. Tickets are inexpensive, and think...More

A trip to this small museum is well worth it. It's small but has a great collection of the first decade of flight, which started there. It is worth an hour or two of your time.

We spent a little over an hour, but it was a nice visit. We got a Groupon that cost $6 for 2 adults and 2 children, which was a great deal. The animated Wright Brother was fun to see. The kids enjoyed making parachutes and...More

Wow, talk about a hidden gem! The only reason I knew about this museum was a colleague recommended it. It's tucked away from the main roads and is bursting with aviation history that will interest both kids and adults. It's not very big, so you...More

A surprisingly nice museum about the history of flight without the crowds at the Smithsonian. A quiet museum just beside the College Park Airport that has its own place in the history of flight. Several planes, flight simulators and more.
