Quite unexpected. This museum of so many Northwest Airlines artifacts up on the third floor outside the fitness room on the third floor of the Crowne Plaza Hotel. Really refreshing.

Beautiful static models portray the aircraft that the company flew since its beginnings in the 1920s until its recent merger with Delta...More
