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.

We spent a little over an hour, but it was a nice visit. We got a Groupon that cost $6 for 2 adults and 2 children, which was a great deal. The animated Wright Brother was fun to see. The kids enjoyed making parachutes and...More
