The 1940 Air Terminal Museum at Hobby Airport, Houston, TX


The 1940 Air Terminal Museum is located on the west ramp of William P. Hobby Airport, between the two Continental Airlines maintenance hangars, and is located in the building that was once the first commercial air terminal in Houston. It contains memorabilia from Pan Am, Braniff, Trans Texas/Texas International, Continental, Southwest, and more! On the third Saturday of every month is the Wings and Wheels event, where they open the ramp to the public to check out the themed airplanes and any transient aircraft. Admission is $2 for adults and $1 for children ($10a/$5c for Wings and Wheels Saturdays, and that includes lunch). Open Tues-Sun 10:00a - 5:00p. If you're flying in, please call the museum and provide an ETA, and inform Hobby Tower that you'll be parking at the 1940 Air Terminal Museum. - Submitted by t0r0nad0

1/13/2020 - Flew in for a visit a year and a half ago. Worth the stop. Lots of interesting history and artifacts. - Submitted by Huey

10/26/2014 - In September 2014 we parked, my brother and I, in front of the terminal. We were not even out of the plane that the friendliest people went off the terminal and greeted us on the tarmac. This museum is a piece of art, and the only one of its kind. Where would you sit were Humphrey Bogart used to wait for a plane? Very impressive visit and very charming people. 10 out of 10. - Submitted by Serge Beaudet

4/9/2009 - The contact email for the museum has changed. Please update your information to have info@1940airterminal.org as the new contact email. - Submitted by PJ Gustafson
