The 1940 Air Terminal Museum

Nestled within the original art-deco terminal at the William P. Hobby Airport, The 1940 Air Terminal Museum traces the heritage of civil and business aviation throughout the 20th century. Memorabilia such as photographs and silver service items chart aviation’s progress, and outside the terminal building, guests can monitor airport activity or marvel at the museum’s daily air shows and plane versus bald-eagle drag races. Elsewhere onsite, the newly restored 1928 Carter Field Airmail Hangar—closed on most weekends—shelters historic aircrafts including a Lockheed Lodestar and a volunteer-restored St. Louis Helicopter. Throughout the year, the museum also hosts frequent annual events, including a monthly Wings and Wheels open house with static airplane and automobile displays.

Customer Reviews

I didn't know about it before Groupon. We enjoyed it very much!

What a delightful, quaint museum experience. Houston is fortunate to have such a place. It was fun to walk down memory lane, seeing many things from my childhood flying experiences. It was also interesting to read the history of Houston's growth as a flight hub. I recommend this outing to Houstonians and to visitors looking for something out of the ordinary.
