Rentals & Birthday Parties

College Park Aviation Museum is a unique place to hold a rental event. It is a 27,000 square foot museum filled with ten aircrafts, interactive exhibits and displays. What makes it unique is its location on the grounds of an active airfield!  

The all glass wall of the museum’s large gallery overlooks the airport’s runway, a colorful scene for evening activities. Our museum boasts a large gallery and three smaller galleries, a mezzanine level overlooking the main gallery, an outdoor patio overlooking the airfield, and a small auditorium that seats 60.

You may choose to rent the entire museum and take advantage of all of the exhibits to entertain your guests. Or, for smaller events, rent the mezzanine level that overlooks the exhibits and aircraft. The auditorium is also available to book for meetings. You may request that the gift shop remain open.

Food and drinks are permitted in the auditorium, on the mezzanine and at outdoor areas, but are not allowed in the museum’s main gallery or library. The museum does not have a kitchen for food preparation.

College Park Aviation Museum only hosts adult-oriented rental events.
