6. There’s a Museum Inside the Hotel Dedicated to Jet Age Travel

Inside the TWA Hotel, there is a museum dedicated to TWA, the Jet Age, and mid-century Modern design curated by the New-York Historical Society. Like the exhibition that was inside the TWA Lounge at 1 WTC, there are rare crew uniforms, personal memorabilia sent in by former TWA employees and their families, and TWA travel posters by illustrator David Klein. But the museum will have much more, including vintage furniture curated from the TWA Hotel’s collection of 2,000 items. You will find items collected from all over the country, such as original blueprints of the TWA terminal, silver serving ware, gilded TWA playing cards, and much more. According to the TWA Hotel, the exhibitions will first be about TWA history and Saarinen’s development of the terminal.

For shopping options, separately, there is also a retail store with a TWA-inspired brand with retro throwback gear designed and curated by Somsack Sikhounmuong, formerly at J.Crew and Madewell, a Shinola store, and more.
