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?!

Recognized as a Top Performing Museum as Reviewed by Travelers on the World’s Largest Travel Site

Houston, Texas – 6, June, 2015 – The 1940 Air Terminal Museum at William P. Hobby Airport today announced that it has received a TripAdvisor® Certificate of Excellence award. Now in its fifth year, the award celebrates excellence in hospitality and is given only to establishments that consistently achieve great traveller reviews on TripAdvisor. Certificate of Excellence winners include accommodations, eateries and attractions located all over the world that have continually delivered a superior customer experience.

When selecting Certificate of Excellence winners, TripAdvisor uses a proprietary algorithm to determine the honorees that takes into account the quality, quantity and recency of reviews and opinions submitted by travelers on TripAdvisor over a 12-month period as well as business’s tenure and ranking on the Popularity Index on the site. To qualify, a business must maintain an overall TripAdvisor bubble rating of at least four out of five, have a minimum number of reviews and must have been listed on TripAdvisor for at least 12 months.

“Winning the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence is a true source of pride for the entire team at The 1940 Air Terminal Museum and we’d like to thank all of our past guests who took the time to complete a review on TripAdvisor,” said Amy Rogers, Managing Director at The 1940 Air Terminal Museum. “There is no greater seal of approval than being recognized by one’s customers. With the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence based on customer reviews, the accolade is a remarkable vote of confidence to our museum and our continued commitment to excellence.”

“TripAdvisor is pleased to honor exceptional hospitality businesses that have received consistent praise and recognition by travelers on the site,” said Marc Charron President, TripAdvisor for Business. “By putting a spotlight on businesses that are focused on delivering great service to customers, TripAdvisor not only helps drive increasing hospitality standards around the world, it also gives businesses both large and small the ability to shine and stand out from the competition.”
