Daniel's Review:
   Today me and my Mom went to the Air terminal museum when we were in Houston. There were a bunch of really old planes. The best part was when I went into a simulator that made it seem like you were actually flying in a plane. That was so cool! It was really neat to see all the planes taking off from the airport too. It was so much different back in the 40's when you wanted to go on a plane. I really hope I get a chance to go back there, it was really different and fun. I will remember the museum next time I fly on a plane.


Mom's Notes:
   The Air Terminal Museum in Houston is one of the most exciting attractions in Houston for an aviation enthusiast such as myself. I figured it would be a great activity to enjoy with my son and I was not disappointed. The admission fee was low and the employees truly seemed to enjoy the history as much as we did. It is located right by the airport, which was a bit loud during the take offs but offered something to keep my son excited about.

  The walls were packed with authentic pictures of the history of aviation, which I admit may have been a little dry for my son, but were a real treat for me. The airplane simulators were a blast for Daniel, and there were some very rare, and well restored planes to admire. This really was a great day out, and offered a unique look into early 20th century aviation.
