The Lone Star Flight Museum began as a private aircraft collection in June 1985. The acquisition of more aircraft quickly led to a search for a new home. In 1990, construction of a 50,000 sq. ft. Phase I facility began at Galveston's Scholes Field. Continued rapid growth required construction of a 30,000 sq. ft. Phase II hangar in 1991. Along with the aircraft collection, the LSFM began to acquire and display aviation memorabilia and artifacts, develop educational programs, and recruit volunteers through our Membership Program implemented in July 1991. The LSFM receives over 35,000 of volunteer service hours each year. Many programs and participation opportunities are available for members to promote and support the LSFM mission.

The 74th Texas Legislature through a concurrent resolution signed by then Gov. George W. Bush, established the LSFM as the Texas Aviation Hall of Fame. The LSFM quickly organized a capital campaign and the Texas Aviation Hall of Fame Education Center was completed in November of 1999. Housed in the new addition are the displays presenting each inductee's experiences and contributions to aviation. Other rotating and permanent educational exhibits designed to increase knowledge, interest and the impact of aviation on today's world are found throughout the Education Center.

The LSFM continues to bolster its national and international reputation as one of the top flying museums in the United States. Today the Museum displays over 40 historically significant aircraft and over 1500 artifacts that demonstrate the quantum leap in technology - from gliders to space - over the past century.
