Family Programs

At the College Park Aviation Museum, we believe learning should be fun and accessible to everyone! We host various ongoing and special programs to foster innovation, creative learning, and connectivity throughout the year.

The programs below are currently being re-vamped to better fit the needs of our guests. If you would like to stay update regarding the re-launch of these programs, please e-mail
