Museum
“A great place to visit! The Navy’s aircraft and flight systems have been tested and evaluated at the Patuxent River Naval Air Station since WWII. There is a Museum, outdoor Aircraft Park and Gift Shop which has a large collection of aviation-themed merchandise if you're looking to pickup gifts to take home. You can see and learn about aviation research, by viewing crew system artifacts, ejection seats, radars, and test instrumentation. In the outdoor aircraft park you can see and touch naval aircraft tested at Pax River. Call or visit the website for seasonal hours of operation. ”
