Lone Star Flight Museum Overnights and Aviation Merit Badge

The Lone Star Flight Museum, located near Ellington Field, is an aerospace museum that displays more than 24 historically significant aircraft, and many artifacts related to the history of flight. The museum's collection is rare because most of the aircraft are flyable.

Cub Scouts and Webelos Scouts can spend the night at the museum. Scouts spend the evening learning about the collection of rare air-worthy warbirds, conducting a preflight inspection of a real plane, testing their pilot skills in our flight simulators, and learning science with more hands-on aviation activities. Then, Scouts set up camp and sleep under the wings of the historic planes like the giant B-17 Bomber!

Scouts in troops, crews, and ships can earn the Aviation Merit Badge three ways:

  1. Attend an Aviation Overnight to work on the badge and then camp out in the hangars surrounded by the historic warbirds.
  2. Attend a merit badge three-hour workshop to earn the badge with staff and volunteers.
  3. Visit the museum and complete the independent merit badge work with your own counselor using museum planes, simulators, exhibits using the online museum guidebook.
