Come and learn about the development of parachutes and Glenn Martin’s role in this history.  As a family, make a parachute, play with a large parachute and see a Power Point illustrating the history of parachutes.

Maryland has a rich aviation and aerospace history, which the Glenn L. Martin Aviation Museum has been preserving since 1990.

Much of this aviation history was made in Middle River, Maryland by the Glenn L. Martin Company (later Martin Marietta).

You can discover and explore  this history in the Museum where you will find history you can touch, and more than a dozen aircraft on display, including three built by the Glenn L. Martin Company in Middle River.

The Museum’s archives, containing plans, documents, research models, aircraft tools, and components, as well as an indexed collection of more than 200,000 aviation and company photographs, is an important resource for researchers.

The Museum offers educational programs for all ages, from a free monthly speaker series to special tours for schools and other groups.
