Went to the TWA museum.  It’s located in the TWA headquarters building at KMKC. It’s all still there.  The building is owned by a fractional ownership company, but it’s exactly the same building. Jack Frye’s office on the second floor.  The original hangar for maintenance in the DC-3s. So much history. 

It’s run entirely by volunteers and donations. The workers were either employees or frequent TWA fliers.  They also have a section dedicated to Ozark Airlines as well

Here is a link to the photos I took:
