Coming to a museum near you


The Paint Team has been working hard to restore one of the Museum's RB-57A's.  After nearly a year of restoring, cleaning and painting, the aircraft is getting its final gloss coat.  This RB-57A was repainted in its black livery to reflect its mission as a night reconnaissance aircraft in Europe during the 1950s.

We missed you!

Volunteers get the table ready for bargain seekers.
Hundreds of visitors took a chance on the weather to come to the last Open Cockpit and Flea Market of the year at the Glenn L. Martin Maryland Aviation  Museum on Saturday.

Families enjoyed the overcast and cool walk along the historic aircraft at Strawberry Point and the children were thrilled to sit in the cockpit of an historic  fighter, airliner or attack helicopter.

Don't forget the Museum is open all year long and you can visit the aircraft, just can't sit inside!
