A flight attendant’s log detailing five years of airborne adventures. Vintage furniture from the TWA headquarters. In-flight amenities — gilded playing cards, silver serving ware — from a more elegant era. These are just some of the items to be showcased at the TWA Hotel, opening on May 15, 2019. The New-York Historical Society — founded in 1804 as New York’s first museum — will curate the exhibitions.
Located within the former TWA terminal — a historic landmark designed by Finnish architect Eero Saarinen and opened in 1962 — the exhibits will allow visitors to experience the Jet Age through authentic artifacts, interactive displays and personal narratives.
