About Us


The CR Smith Museum in Fort Worth, Texas, is one of the few Museums in the world dedicated solely to commercial aviation. The Museum opened in July 1993, and is dedicated to Cyrus Rowlett "C.R." Smith, longtime American Airlines president and aviation pioneer, and to the past and present American Airlines employees. The Museum is operated by the CR Smith Museum Foundation.


All Museum Store proceeds directly support C R Smith Museum programs. The Museum is a non-profit organization funded by the generous gifts of corporate partners, American Airlines Group employees and retirees, and museum friends.
