College Park Aviation Museum is a unique, family-friendly museum, filled with historic airplanes, flight simulators, aviation-oriented video games, and even a pilot-focused costume lab, where you can have your photo taken in a pilot's uniform. Sound fun? Then head on over to this College Park favorite.
In addition to touring the museum itself, you'll also be able to head out to the building's patio, where you can observe a number of small planes and helicopters taking off on the neighboring airport's runway. You can even bring a picnic lunch to enjoy while you watch. The museum also hosts regularly scheduled interactive events, ranging from arts and crafts for kids to expert-led tours for adults, so be sure to check the website for a current schedule of events before you visit. Finally, Yelp reviewers note that the museum itself is modestly sized, and can be a good choice if you've got limited time.
