The Mission of the 1940 Air Terminal Museum is to demonstrate the impact of aviation on Houston’s history and economic development through the prism of architectural beauty. The 1940 Air Terminal Museum is housed in the historic art deco terminal building that once served the City of Houston as the Houston Municipal Airport. The building is now a protected landmark and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Between Hobby Airport’s airline traffic, business aviation, and frequent fixed-wing and rotary-wing general aviation traffic, a visit to the museum will provide each guest with a front-row view of the active runways! – 1940airterminal.org
