The Historic Aviation Memorial Museum offers a lobby area for rent. This area will hold up to 125 people and overlooks Tyler Pounds Regional Airport runways, with plain view to planes taking off and landing. This is the only area of the airport that has excellent observation for that activity. The museum provides ample seating with table and chairs for your event. Many uses for this great area has been enjoyed with the hosting of anniversary parties, birthday parties, and business luncheons or dinners. The lobby opens to a courtyard, with beautiful red roses, which blooms throughout most of the year as well as a nice grassy area. One may bring in your own food and drink, or have it catered. Reservations for the lobby are handled by Karon Gilmore through the museum, (903) 526-1945. A $30 rental deposit is required to hold the reservation at the time the rental agreement is signed and will be applied as a cleaning fee should the lobby not be left clean by the lessee. The $30 deposit will be returned to the lessee within a week of the event if the lobby is left clean.
