Being located next to a light rail station, close by the Mall of America would be a considered an enviable location for many organizations and businesses, however the NWA History Centre deals with the  challenge of being tucked away in the basement of a nondescript 1980’s office building with little to no signage, which makes it a challenge to find.

Still, for airline and airplane buffs, as only one of three museums in the U.S. dedicated to a commercial airline and the only airline museum started and maintained by the airline’s own employees, it is worth the time to seek out.  It is a great place to stop and spend some time for those on layover at the near by Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport.

NWA History Centre built most of it’s collection through the donations of Northwest Airlines employees and a donated of material by Delta after the  NWA merger.
