The 1940 Air Terminal Museum needs your help!

Apply for membership and help support the 1940 Air Terminal Museum!

The Houston Aeronautical Heritage Society is restoring the long vacant Houston Municipal Airport Terminal as the 1940 Air Terminal Museum, an interactive museum showcasing the importance of civil aviation since the dawn of manned flight.

The second phase of the Houston Aeronautical Heritage Society's 1940 Air Terminal Museum has been completed. We have restored additional portions of Houston's original art-deco air terminal and have acquired the 1928 Air Mail hangar, the oldest building on Hobby Airport. The Houston Aeronautical Heritage Society has been recognized as a tax-exempt organization by the IRS under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. We invite you to apply to be a member of the 1940 Air Terminal Museum and be a part of this exciting project.

All members will receive a membership card and certificate, enjoy free admission to the museum during regular business hours, discounted pricing on museum programs, free admission to Wings & Wheels, free admission to certain special events, and exclusive opportunities to participate in museum contests and fundraisers.
