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.

Still under construction but fascinating! Our guide was passionate--fun day!

Great staff! Awesome history and retro building! Very vintage
Rodolfo C. · July 14, 2016
This was very interesting and I think more people should visit this place and learn the history of this little airport terminal. If you're interesting in flying or just like history this is a great place to go. It is small but very educational.
