Due to technical difficulties, the museum will be closed tomorrow (5/21) to allow us time to make necessary repairs to our point of sale operating system.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you and appreciate your patience and understanding.

We will reopen for normal business on Tuesday (5/23) at 10am.

Thank you for your support of the museum!

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving celebrated the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (11/29). As you begin your holiday shopping, please consider giving to the 1940 Air Terminal Museum.

Your gift will help kick start our 2017 strategic goal initiatives into high gear and provide much needed funding to ensure our fundraising ventures are successful.
We are so thankful for all of your continued support.


Amazon Smile

Here’s an easy way to support the museum while doing your holiday shopping:

Support us when you shop on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. #StartWithaSmile at http://smile.amazon.com/ch/76-0612294 and Amazon donates to Houston Aeronautical Heritage Society Inc.
This is a super easy way to make a donation. All you have to do is shop on Amazon just like you normally would (aside from adding the word “smile” to the beginning of the web address) and select Houston Aeronautical Heritage Society, Inc. as your charity of choice. This will not add on any hidden fees or cause your item to cost you any additional money. Amazon will simply donate a percentage of your purchase to the museum. How great is that?!
