Since 1995, the Delta Flight Museum has allowed visitors from around the world to explore aviation history, celebrate the story and people of Delta, and discover the future of flight. The Museum was recently renovated into a world-class attraction that offers engaging exhibits and interactive programming for aviation enthusiasts of all ages.
Standing in the heart of Delta’s Atlanta headquarters, the 68,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art attraction makes a perfect outing for family, friends, school groups, and more. The new space also can be rented for special events, including business meetings, conferences, and weddings. With historic glamour and modern amenities, the Museum is a one-of-a-kind venue within a mile of the world’s busiest airport.
More Information on
The Delta Flight Museum is located in Delta’s original 1940s-era aircraft hangars in Atlanta. The hangars became the Delta Air Transport Heritage Museum and restoration facility for Delta’s first 21‐passenger Douglas DC‐3 in 1995. In 2011, the attraction was designated a Historic Aerospace Site.
The Museum consists of two airplane hangars and a plaza area across the parking lot. Historic Hangars 1 and 2 are the primary exhibition spaces, with a focus on the history of Delta and its family airlines from the 1920s to today. Across the parking lot are 747 Plaza featuring a Boeing 747 plane open to visitors, an event pavilion with restrooms, and a static DC-9 and Boeing 757.
Our recent renovation of the Museum brings new life to the facility. Renovation funding was provided by The Delta Air Lines Foundation. We also received generous gifts from Delta Air Lines employees, retirees, and friends of the Museum. The Delta Flight Museum is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
