Spent a couple of hours here. Interesting exhibits and great information. It gets a little busy and noisy later in the morning and so go early to have a quiet experience.

Nice displays of vintage aircraft and some interactive displays for teens and adults. $5 for adults and enough displays that you will want to spend at least an hour or two

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.
