Glenn L. Martin Maryland Aviation Museum [MD]

Founded in 1990, the Glenn L. Martin Maryland Aviation Museum is a private, nonprofit corporation. The Museum's purpose is to maintain an educational institution dedicated to the promotion, preservation, and documentation of aviation and space history in Maryland—namely, the contributions of Glenn L. Martin and his successful company. On display are many items of Maryland historical significance, including industrial models of aircraft and rockets, wind tunnel models, restored and partly-restored aircraft, and many original photographs outlining the growth of the Martin Company. An effort has been made to chronologically depict this growth from its beginnings in Santa Ana, California, to its current standing as the Lockheed Martin Corporation. The Museum also spotlights aviation history in Maryland. Unknown to most, the United State's earliest manned flight took place in Maryland.

The museum offers exhibits, tours, and lectures.
