Military Museum · Hidden Gem · History Museum
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.

  • A very interesting place to go at least once in your life. My kids had a blast on the flight simulators. Former pilots and other experienced personnel were patrolling the exhibits, frequently stopping by and sharing concepts and experiences with genuine zeal. If you have a family member who is obsessed with aeronautics, I could see how a membership could be worthwhile. Otherwise, a single visit should be sufficient for most. Surprisingly, the gift shop was very reasonably priced with many small objects around $3-5.
  • I wish i could give it more stars! Fantastic place to see planes. Lots of really cool things to do. I had 2 teens go with me and they loved it! And meeting the mechanics was awesome!
