Hidden gem in south San Antonio. Exciting to meander through this small, yet exciting air museum and soak up history of early military flight, Army Air Corp, and Air Force.

I was not sure what to expect when I pulled up outside the hangar. I was greeted by a friendly volunteer who thanked me for visiting. The museum is filled with a variety of artifacts from aviation history as well as models of aircraft.

Stinson Field is a very storied place even without the museum. There really was a time with "the big airport" (SAT) was nothing but pasture land and SSF was the hub of civilian air traffic into and out of San Antonio. The TAM takes visitors...More

There's a lot of very interesting items here but, unfortunately, it appears they haven't the funds or people to properly (i.e. professionally) display, store, and preserve the artifacts. It's well worth a visit..I sincerely hope they're able to preserve these valuable items for generations.
