AmericanAirlines® C.R. Smith Museum
Hours & Directions | Booking Events | Gifts That Last A Lifetime
The AmericanAirlines C. R. Smith Museum is much more than a museum. It's a sight-and-sound, hands-on, window-seat look at the world of flight. It's an adventure offering you a chance to hear, see, touch and be a part of the exciting aviation industry. Best of all, it's a great place for the entire family - or any group - to enjoy time and time again.
The C.R. Smith Museum, just south of DFW
Airport, is a one-of-a-kind adventure into the world of commercial aviation. The museum opened in July 1993 and is dedicated to past and present American Airlines employees and C.R. Smith, longtime American Airlines president and aviation pioneer.
The museum is a non-profit organization funded by the generous gifts of corporate partners, AMR employees, AMR retirees and museum friends. The museum is operated by the C.R. Smith Aviation Museum Foundation and emphasizes hands-on learning through hands-on displays. Get directions to visit the C.R. Smith Museum Gift Shop.
