TWA Museum

10 Richards Rd , Kansas City , MO 64116 - United States




The mission of the TWA Museum is to provide information to the public emphasizing the story, history and importance of the major role TWA played in pioneering commercial aviation.

From the birth of airmail to the inception of passenger air travel, to the post-WWII era of global route expansion, TWA led the way for 75 years.

The TWA Museum became a Chapter of the Platte County Historical Society in 1985 and was under the direction of Marie Trainer. In 2010 Pam Blaschum took over the direction of the museum and with Pat Brinkman worked diligently to secure a space in the original building that was built in 1931 to accommodate the newly formed TWA corporate headquarters.
