The 1940 Air Terminal Museum is housed in the original art-deco Houston Municipal Airport building at present-day William P. Hobby Airport. The Museum showcases the rich heritage of civil aviation, including the airlines, general aviation and business aviation. Exhibits include Houston's fascinating aviation history.

Where Houston's aviation history comes alive!

A visit to the Museum also affords a front row vantage point to Hobby Airport's diverse airport operations. Between airline traffic, business aviation and frequent fixed wing and rotary wing general aviation traffic, the Museum has an air show every day. The entire ground floor of the historic Terminal is occupied by the Museum. The restoration of the upper floors, including the observation decks and the tower cab, is pending. Our campus has expanded to include the recently restored 1928 Carter Field Airmail Hangar.

The Terminal and Hangar are being restored and operated by the Houston Aeronautical Heritage Society, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
