About us

Located in Galveston, Texas since 1990, the Lone Star Flight Museum is a 501 (c)(3) educational museum. In addition to housing an award -winning collection of historically significant aircraft, the museum is also home to the Texas Aviation Hall of Fame. Lead by CEO Douglas H. Owens, Lt. General (Ret), the Museum will move from its current Galveston location to a new $38M state of the art facility at Ellington Field in Houston, TX. The new Museum will open to the public Labor Day weekend. The 130,000 square foot facility will include the Texas Aviation Hall of Fame, historic aircrafts and period artifacts, and a $1 million Aviation Learning Center featuring simulator-based S.T.E.M. (science, technology, engineering and math) curriculum, that provides a hands-on, interactive learning environment to inspire and educate students.  An initial $25 million Phase I capital campaign to build a new facility at Ellington Airport was completed in 2015. That success led to a further expansion of the facility and mission of the museum. A Phase II campaign is currently underway to fund that expanded effort.
