Families

College Park Aviation Museum is family-friendly and filled with hands-on, interactive exhibits. Touch, explore, and sit in the cockpit of our "Imagination Plane", a 1939 blue Taylorcraft. Visit our hands-on room to learn about flight and to dress like a pilot. Fly away in one of our simulators or play on our outdoor pedal planes. There are many options for any family to choose from. The museum also offers exciting family programs and special events throughout the year! 

See our calendar for specific dates and other family-friendly special events.

Peter Pan Club

The Peter Pan Club is College Park Aviation Museum's pre-school learning club. Join us for aviation stories and activities the second and fourth Thursdays of every month. This activity is free with regular museum admission, and reservations are not required. The Peter Pan Club starts with a story being read at 10:30 am and generally lasts about an hour. To schedule a Peter Pan program for a group please call the museum to make a private reservation.
