Overview

Self-reported by organization

A visit to 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 an air show every day. Although the Museum has been open in the 1940 Air Terminal's north wing since January 2004, the Museum is completing expansion into the newly restored ticket lobby and south wing. Beginning this spring, the Museum will also include historic aircraft exhibits in the newly restored 1928 Carter Field Airmail Hangar.
