CR Smith Museum

The CR Smith Museum is named in honor of Cyrus Rowlett Smith. He was an aviation pioneer and became the president of American Airlines in 1934.

The museum showcases airline operations and the people who run American Airlines every day.

In addition, you can also watch a short film in the museum’s 4K digital theater.
