  • It's a great place to visit for anyone interested in aircraft, aviation, history, or architecture. The volunteers staffing the museum are enthusiastic and knowledgeable. 4 year old loved the decommissioned simulators.
  • Many cool airplane models from the old days, art deco design. Great for kids who have an interest in automobiles. Bonus: The guides are super smart!
  • It's like time travel...when the planes were all new and the flight fashions were elegant. Such cool, little-known details are revealed during the annual Houston Vintage Festival I attend. Love that we could see an air show and actually touch the planes, which is awesome for kids. Only wish more well-advertised events were held here...
  • Had the best time here! Great guides, interesting exhibits, fascinating stories told by the volunteers.
  • Had a really great time here as we hosted a private event for our family. It was a pleasant experience except the room was crowded. The event we hosted was a baby shower and the air terminal was a great idea for our theme since it was airplane theme. We took some fantastic retro photos in the museum which gave the pics a classic look. Also got a chance to take a few groups of people to the hangar to see some of the old planes up close.
