The Lone Star Flight Museum is an aerospace museum with a collection of over 24 historically significant aircraft, plus numerous artifacts related to the history of flight.

The museum began as a private collection in 1985 and in 1990, that collection became the Lone Star Flight Museum, a non-profit organization.

The museum’s collection participates in airshows and operates flights for visitor passengers in historic aircraft such as the B-17 Flying Fortress and a Douglas DC-3.

The Texas Aviation Hall of Fame is located within the museum. It honors the contributions of residents or natives of Texas to aviation and spaceflight. 

The museum is located next to Ellington Airport in Houston in a combined aviation museum complex with its own airport ramp. 

The Ellington Airport is a public and military use airport located 17 mi, 28 km southeast of downtown Houston. Formerly known as Ellington Field, then Ellington Air Force Base, then again as Ellington Field.
