Description

Houston Press' Description

There was a time when air travel was not a giant pain in the ass. When you went to sleek terminals that reeked of the romantic adventure of flying, where you walked out to your plane and up one of those stairway ramps past the propellers, where there wasn't a sneaker search or a Starbucks in sight. You can still get a whiff of that time at the old terminal at Hobby Airport, which sits in all its Art Deco glory off to the side of the massive operation that's there now. The museum inside isn't exactly designed for the ADD-wracked video-game crowd, but it's a charming glimpse into the past.

    Ask for Mr. Roy to give you a tour. He is a great guy!

    In addition to the memorabilia and gift shop housed in the refurbished terminal, the museum also encompasses a classic hangar that's home to a Lockheed Lodestar.
