Private Events


We are proud to offer the 1940 Air Terminal Museum as a venue for special events in the greater Houston area. Educationally rich and architecturally beautiful, our facility has a unique and intimate setting that impresses every guest and event planner. Fine stucco designs, limestone panels, cool marble floors, and an elegant chandelier testify to Houston’s bygone Art Deco era.

Exhibit rooms filled with artifacts, photographs, uniforms, vintage aircraft, and airline memorabilia chart the triumph and progression of both private and commercial flight in Texas history. 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 its own private air show every day!

Our Museum Administrator and volunteer staff are happy to answer any questions you may have regarding room and furniture rentals here at the Museum. Contact us via phone or email, or schedule an appointment for a private consultation on the premises.

We are so glad to see your expressed interest in this Museum. We look forward to working with you soon!
