  • This is an old airport terminal, now disabled and transformed into a museum. Have objects and clothes, miniatures, and recreates some environments of the time. The ticket is cheap and worth to see a bit of history. We were lucky to be served by a veteran of the American civil aviation told some stories about how it was the site in ancient times.

  • This is a unique venue to explore past days of elegant air travel. The museum is the actual terminal building from 1940, one of the few original purpose built structures. Inside is restored with many artifacts from past and present airlines who used the terminal. This volunteer based museum recalls the gentler, more refined years of air travel.
  • Great place, I especially love the fact it is in the old Houston Metropolitan terminal. Being on an active runway is another awesome aspect. I accidentally went during a vintage fest, which took away from the museum, but will definitely be back to see how much better it is on a normal day
  • We have been vendors at the Houston Vintage Market that's located at the 1940 Air Terminal Museum. We're always so impressed by how welcoming the staff is to all us retro nuts. Many people who work there are volunteers who have a deep appreciation for They all take such pride in this most-intriguing time capsule of air travel. Lovely place!
