What began as a large collection of Delta Air Lines artifacts in 1995, the Delta Flight Museum reopened in 2014 as a state-of-the-art facility for visitors on the company's campus near Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
The historic Hangar 1, once the largest in the southeast, was formerly used as a maintenance facility. Here you'll find the company's original Douglas DC-3, a replica of the Huff Daland Duster and The Spirit of Delta, the airline's first Boeing 767, which was purchased by employees in 1982.
Learn more about each machine with touch screen displays and admire the artifacts from over the years. Inside the Spirit of Delta, you'll find original seats and flight attendant uniforms from Delta's tenure as well as the airlines it acquired in its history like Western, Northwest and Pacific Northern. There's even a flight simulator, which costs extra.
The museum is open every day except Wednesday, from 10 am to 4:30 pm during the week and 12 to 4:30 pm on Sunday. Guided tours run at 1 pm on Tuesdays. You'll be required to show photo ID upon entering the facility. Admission is $12.50 for visitors but military and Delta employees receive a discount. It's a great stop on your way to or from the airport.
