Private events

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. 

The College Park Aviation Museum offers a unique setting to host small events such as business meetings, training, or small gatherings. Our capacity allows for up to 65 guests.

All food and decorations must remain upstairs on a mezzanine level. Planes, decorations, and exhibits cannot be altered or removed. Please check with the museum for current exhibits or displays.

When booking during business hours (Tuesday-Sunday 10 am-4 pm), please note the museum will be open to the public. The rental area will be blocked off to the public, but the stairs, elevators, and mezzanine hallway will be available for public access.
