The Lone Star Flight Museum, located in Houston, Texas, is an aerospace museum that displays more than 24 historically significant aircraft, and many artifacts related to the history of flight. The museum's collection is rare because most of the aircraft are flyable. Located at Ellington Airport, the museum is housed on about 100,000 ft2 (10,000 m2) of property, including its own airport ramp. The museum, formerly located in Galveston, moved to Houston to avoid a repeat of the devastation suffered during Hurricane Ike.Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Houston trip simple and quick.

FYI - That huge price currently listed on Tripadvisor of $45 per person is WRONG. Go to the museum's website and see the correct prices for yourself.

Not a lot of planes but great exhibits and very interactive. Rotation of planes coming in; so there's usually a couple different planes every time we go. Great place to take kids or a group of kids to learn about older historical planes. Staff is very friendly and helpful. They even have other displays like the history of the Battleship Texas which we found very informative. The balcony is also a great spot to stand and look over all the planes in the hanger. What many of our group found fascinating was that all but 2 of their planes actually fly at least once to several times a year.
Took my 8 year old grand daughter. We both loved it. There are 2 hangers with planes. A good amount of hands on things. We happened to be there when a team with robots were doing an exhibit. There was also an egg drop event we were able to participate in. If still available, do Groupon for tickets.
