    This was a great hidden gem in Houston! We loved the tour. It was awesome to stand in the middle of the terminal an imagine all the employees and passengers coming in and out at one point in time. I think we stayed there for two hours!

    It's really a cool museum to check out. It's the only and first Art Deco airplane museum in Houston. There are very few left in the United States. Every third Saturday of each month they have the wheels and car larger event it's a must go...

    An extraordinary hidden gem. Not many know about this museum and the importance of this 1940's Air Terminal. All the employees are amazing. I have also met friendly volunteers who were passionate about their work. The lobby of this Air Terminal will take you back in time!

    The Seniors from Watercrest at Shadow Creek Ranch had a wonderful time at the Museum! Our tour guide, Mr John McNulty, was fantastic, sharing his vast knowledge of Houston aviation history. Again, it was GREAT! Thank you John.

    What a great place! Definitely a hidden gem. Took a group of 10 high school seniors for a photo shoot there. The space was perfect for pictures, but the history lessons from volunteer PHIL was unexpected and a delight. My kiddos say this was one of the most special experiences they have had. If you link up with a volunteer, those guys lived it so their stories are amazing. I can imagine this being a beautiful place to have a wedding! And the planes... .oh the planes. Inside and outside.

Where to stay in Houston

If you come to Houston to splurge while on holiday, book a luxurious room at a downtown hotel. This area is an ideal base for getting to know Houston, offering you a chance to stay within walking distance of one of the country's largest theater districts. Houston bills itself as the "Energy Capital of the World," so it's no surprise that it houses many "green" hotels, their garages designed to cater to electric vehicle owners. For something completely different, enjoy a Texas country experience at a working ranch outside the city limits.
