We had the whole place to ourselves today for a short while and my 5 & 7 year olds had a great time! The museum itself isn’t that big but a nice experience to keep the kids entertained and learn at the same time. We were there for about an hour and a half or so.

The staff member who admitted us was very nice. The museum is very small, or intimate ;) and attractive. There were plenty of child friendly touches. The two flight simulator games were down, which was disappointing. There were a few customers who filtered in and out. Unfortunately there were three children (approximately 9-12 yo) who went totally out of control, battering the neat little historical plane you are allowed to explore, touch and sit in. I was far off and didn’t understand what on earth was happening. After many minutes (maybe five-eight) the parent finally responded to the destruction. I then saw there are clear instructions to touch and sit gently to keep the plane intact for future years. I’m pretty sure they took a few decades of the plane yesterday. Too bad.

My 4yr old loves the museum but it's quite small. We were done in about 15min.

About College Park Aviation Museum

The history of heavier-than-air flight goes back more than 100 years. So does the history of the College Park Airport. In fact, the hangar's story is intertwined with the Wright brothers'. Wilbur Wright once gave flight lessons to military officers at the airport—effectively establishing America’s first flight training school.

Today, the College Park Aviation Museum, a Smithsonian Affiliate, is located next to the world's oldest continuously-operating airport. Hands-on interactive exhibits offer engaging entertainment for all ages. The Imagination Plane allows museum-goers to use their creativity to travel around the world, while the latest exhibit on Delivering America: Airmail to Email—celebrates the daring pilots, innovations and the birth of America’s commercial airlines. Gravity-defiers can visit a reproduction of the Wrights' 1910 Model B, as well as a prototypical helicopter from 1924 and try their hand a “flying” a commercial jet.
