The Patuxent River Naval Air Museum (PRNAM) is a member-supported, privately-funded museum preserving the history and heritage of Naval Aviation and associated technology.

Our mission is to “Preserve, Educate, Inspire” by presenting the continuing story of Naval Aviation with a focus on Research, Development, Testing, and Evaluation (RDT&E) at Naval Air Station Patuxent River. Our Vision is to be a highly valued community resource providing both educational and tourism benefits to the Southern Maryland area for generations.

Located just outside Gate 1 of Naval Air Station Patuxent River, the PRNAM is operated by the Patuxent River Naval Air Museum Association, Inc., a 501(C)3 non-profit charitable organization. First opened in 1978, the Patuxent River Naval Air Museum now spans three buildings and also includes a Flight Line consisting of one-of-a-kind aircraft and aircraft configurations unique to the Naval Test Center.

  • Thoroughly enjoyed visit. Excellent well kept displays, both inside and outside. Unlike many air museums, able to walk-up and touch them. Loved the hands on mock-up trainers and simulators. Very...

  • The museum is about preserving the history and heritage of Naval Aviation and associated technology. Touching the Blue Angel on display was awesome! Additionally, the history / legacy of one of the local lighthouses, Cedar Point was honored.
  • Amazing experience. Way better than expected! If you have any interest in aviation this is a must stop!
