The LAX Flight Path Museum begins a new operating schedule Tuesday, July 18th, expanding the number of hours and days the facility is open to the public each week.

The museum, which houses one of Southern California’s largest collections of historical aviation materials, will be open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, according to Rowena Ake, president of the nonprofit Flight Path.

Flight Path operates the facility in cooperation with Los Angeles World Airports, the City of Los Angeles agency that operates Los Angeles airports.

“We have received many requests to increase our operating hours,” Ake said. “We are grateful to the airport community relations staff and to our Flight Path volunteers for making this expanded schedule possible.”

The Flight Path Museum exhibits currently focus on the 60th anniversary of airline service at LAX, with models, photos and other mementos on display saluting the original carriers and the many airlines added to the schedule since commercial service began in 1946. The museum also features a panoramic mural detailing the history of LAX and the Centennial of Flight.

The museum is in the LAX Imperial Terminal on the south perimeter of the airfield. Admission and parking are free.
