This year marks the 75th Anniversary of the terminal’s opening and we could not be more excited! Because of you we have been successful in not only saving the beautiful art deco Houston Municipal Airport but we have been able to keep its history alive! We look forward to sharing in this joyous occasion with all of you throughout the year in 2015. Give today and help to ensure that the 1940 Air Terminal Museum continues to thrive and prosper.
