The Wright Brothers tested some of their first airplane designs here and trained the first pilots for the U.S. military, their first customers. Home to the 'Wright Stuff,' College Park then became home to the Right Stuff as early pilots, like 'Hap' Arnold, began to...More

Neat connection with the Wright Brothers and if you are a Wright Brothers fan, definitely worth the visit. I found the exhibits to be a bit worn, though, and the kids interactive area kinda messy. There is a robotron Wright brother as you enter. Fairly...More

Small but I learned a few facts I never knew about the Wright brothers and the first helicopter. It was very close to the hotel and I did not even mind paying to go there!!

Kiddo loved this place. The static exhibits are ok, but the interactive stuff was a huge hit. We'll be back!

I wish more people knew about this place. A nice museum about the little known history of aviation in the College Park area. Kids would really love it here and I think adults would definitely find it interesting.

I was looking for a fun place for a toddler on a rainy day and this fit the bill. One of the best things about it is that it is not overly crowded--you don't have to spend lots of time waiting to see the exhibits...More

What I like most about this museum is that it allows children to have their photo taken inside the plane which is great for feeding the dream that one day your child can fly. Even small adults can fit into the cockpit thereby feeling younger...More
