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.

The Space Mural

We at the Patuxent River Naval Air Museum are dedicating our efforts to the preservation of a special piece of Pax River history. Please follow this link over to the donations page to find out more about how you can help save a great mural that once hung in the Cedar Point Officer's Club and is now designated a National Historic Asset. Once it is preserved, the painting will become the backdrop for the Naval Aviation in Space exhibit now in development.
