  • 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.
  • Such a great museum! If you love the history and lore of aviation, this is great. As for price, you couldn't ask for better. A volunteer, Mr. Haines, was very knowledgeable and informative. He walked us through some exhibits and shared much info. I do wish the gift shop was a little more enticing, perhaps some vintage airline T-shirts, stickers, etc, but it is worth going.
