CAF Houston Wing Museum and Hangar
Open to the public on the 1st and the 3rd Saturday of each month from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.
The Houston Wing is proud of its WWII museum is primarily dedicated to WWII aviation but which also covers American, German and Japanese military and home front life during the War. You are invited to spend time in our hangar and museum during your visit. The museum exhibits are labeled but there are knowledgeable docents available to expand on the items on display.
Our hangar and museum are open the first and third Saturday of each month from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. free of charge. We may accommodate visits by organizations or groups at other times by appointment.
Docent-guided tours to church groups, senior groups, scout groups, clubs or school field trips during the week are available with a prior appointment. The Houston Wing’s Museum Collections Officer will work with you to schedule your group’s visit to our hangar and museum. Museum and aircraft guided tours typically last about 2 hours depending on your group size.
School and other youth groups are limited by size to 40 – 50 students, but we request that all visiting groups have at least one escorting adult for every eight children and we hope you understand that our museum is not designed to be truly appreciated by children younger than 8 years old. Adult group tours can be arranged for groups of 12 or more.
For more information or to schedule a group tour, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of your group, your phone number and email, the number in your party, the ages of any children in your party, and the date and time you would like to visit. Our Museum Collections Officer will be in touch soon. (If you do not get a response within a week call our hangar at 281- 579-2131 and leave a message for our Museum Officer).
Hangar Tour with Aircraft
Five of our aircraft are World War II era and one is a Korean War era airplane. These aircraft are maintained and operated by volunteer members of the unit. Maintenance and restoration of these aircraft is an ongoing operation and is done primarily in the hangar. During your tour, you may have the opportunity to get inside the cockpit of a WWII trainer or climb aboard a WWII paratroop aircraft. As this is a working hangar, availability of aircraft and or touring is subject to change. In addition to the flying aircraft, this hangar has a display of WWII engines on static display.
