Construction of the airfield in Neuhardenberg as a secret military airport was taken up in 1934. The first rocket-powered aircrafts from the Heinkel factories were tested here in 1937. A number of operations took place from here during World War II. Towards the end of the war, the Red Army used the airfield for ‘Operation Berlin’.

Neuhardenberg was renamed Marxwalde in 1949. From 1959 the airfield was used as the base of the flying squadron of the government of the GDR and it was guarded around the clock. Sigmund Jähn, the first German to fly into space (1978) lived and worked in Neuhardenberg for 18 years. He was the pilot of the fighter plane MiG-21 that is shown at the museum. The air transport squadron of the Bundeswehr was based on the airfield after the end of the GDR era.

In addition to an exhibition of all aircraft models flown by the National People's Army of the GDR, the museum features an exhibition about the history of the airfield in Neuhardenberg from 1934 to the present day.

The museum is located at the access road to the B167, at the town exit towards Wriezen. The ‘Flugplatzausstellung’ is sign-posted.
