  1. Hi! Do you have to join something or sign up somewhere to visit the TWA terminal? I’m changing my flight back to NYC to land at JFK on the 18th just to see it.

      It’s open access, so you won’t need a reservation. But we would recommend going early to line up, it’s guaranteed to be packed!
