The Patuxent River Naval Air Museum officially opened the doors to the new Museum facility outside of the Gate to Naval Air Station Patuxent River. The Museum facility has a 20,000 square-foot exhibit hall and theater and is a landmark state of the art facility in Southern Maryland.
The Museum focuses on the heritage of naval aviation’s research, development, test and evaluation for the U.S. Navy. The building roof-line takes on a very familiar shape of an aircraft and the local St. Mary's County community is very proud of this addition.
As the Museum grows from opening in 1978, the Patuxent River Naval Air Museum now proudly boasts three buildings and includes the adjacent flight line of 14 unique U.S. Navy aircraft that are one-of-a-kind aircraft that are rich with Test and Evaluation History at NAS PAX River.
The Hangardeck Podcast would like to announce the Patuxent River Naval Air Museum is now a proud sponsor of The Hangardeck Podcast! We recently met with the Museum President, Mr. George Hill and Manager, Mr. Dan Bramos, and set the wheels in motion to produce The Hangardeck Podcast show monthly from the Museum Theater. Stay tuned as our first Patuxent River Naval Air Museum show is in the works. Look for the official Press Release from the Museum and The Hangardeck Podcast team soon.
