The mission of the Northwest Airlines History Center (NWAHC) is to inspire interest in commercial and civilian aviation utilizing the history of Northwest Airlines and the 12 airlines that are part of its corporate history.
Description: Since 2002, the Northwest Airlines History Center (NWAHC) has been the Upper Midwest’s only museum dedicated to celebrating commercial aviation, showing how Northwest and its precursors enriched the region’s social and economic fabric, and how the company’s scientific and engineering advances made traveling safer and more reliable. We are a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit currently operating a small public museum location at the Crowne Plaza AiRE MSP Hotel in Bloomington, MN, and maintaining archives at Flying Cloud Airport in Eden Prairie, MN. To better inspire young people to pursue careers in aviation and travel, and attract a new generation of museum leadership, the NWAHC Board has developed a "Go Big" strategic plan to consolidate and expand at a Twin Cities airport location in the mid-2020s. This facility will be a regional and national attraction with full-size passenger aircraft and simulators, hands-on museum exhibits, classrooms, scheduled activities, and a signature event space and restaurant.
