Rentals & Birthday Parties

The College Park Aviation Museum and College Park Airport Operations Building offer a unique setting to host a business meeting, training, wedding, or reception. Both buildings overlook the world's oldest continuously operating general aviation airport!

The Museum's Main Gallery space - filled with 10 aircraft, interactive exhibits, photographs, and displays with a glass viewing wall facing the airport's runway - offers a scenic backdrop for evening activities. The museum boasts a large gallery and three smaller galleries, a mezzanine level overlooking the main gallery, and an outdoor patio overlooking the airfield. You may choose to rent the entire museum and take advantage of all the exhibits to entertain your guests. Or, for smaller events, rent the mezzanine and patio overlooking the main gallery and airfield. 

The Operations Building offers myriad spaces from a state-of-the-art meeting space, which can also be rented for receptions and other events, to a light filled two-story lobby, and an outdoor terrace overlooking the airfield. We can host your event for 30 or 300!
