The irony of opening our building in the midst of Hurricane Harvey is not lost on any of us. We are the reality of surviving a hurricane and rebuilding and we know that our community will overcome this trial, said Douglas H. Owens, Lt Gen (ret), CEO, Lone Star Flight Museum.
As we support the region's recovery, I am moved by the sense of strength and common purpose that rises above and is on full display. We look forward to visitors arriving at our doors and we are proud of the experience they will have in our new facility.
Open daily from 9:00 a.m. ? 5:00 p.m.
