Welcome to the 1940 Air Terminal Museum!

The 1940 Air Terminal Museum

Demonstrating the impact of aviation on Houston's history and economic development through the prism of architectural beauty.

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.

We are located at 8325 Travelair Street, Houston, Texas 77061, on the west side of Hobby Airport, just east of Telephone Road. The Museum is open 10-5 Tuesday through Saturday, and 1-5 on Sunday afternoons. Regular admission is $5 for adults and $3 for kids ages 12-5. Kids 4 and under are free. The Museum also offers free admission for Museum Members, active duty members of the military, law enforcement and fire fighters.

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