Go to a Museum… Without going downtown

Want to drive to a museum that has plenty of parking and isn’t very crowded? Go to the College Park Aviation Museum! We just got home from this destination and it was definitely fun! It’s not enormous, but it has lots of hands-on activities for little ones and my 5-year-old was engrossed!

It’s $4 for adults and $2 for kids; kids under 2 are free. Another FANTASTIC aspect of this museum is that it is adjacent to the College Park Airport (I didn’t even know there was a College Park airport). This is free to look at (obviously) and was almost as good as the museum inside (according to my 5-year-old).

We saw a plane take off when we were leaving !!!!!!!!

Did you now that The Wright Brothers worked on their planes in College Park right after they were at Kitty Hawk?!

While you are there you can have lunch at the 94th Aero Squadron Restaurant which is around the corner from the museum, but no food or drink is allowed inside.

** While you are in College Park, fill up your tank; Regular gas is $1.55 per gallon ! **
