It is a decent and an only museum in college park. Nothing special about it but you can just go and take a quick tour with friends. It is just opposite College park metro station so not difficult to commute.

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.

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
