Delta Flight Museum

Delta Air Lines has a rich history dating back to the early 1920s as a crop-dusting outfit in central Georgia. The company has grown into one of the largest, most well respected airlines in the world. If you’re in Atlanta, you have to visit the Delta Flight Museum, located on Delta’s campus on the north side of Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

The museum chronicles Delta’s rich history. It includes several of Delta’s historical aircraft - including a DC-3, it’s first 767, and the first ever built 747-400. Make sure to check https://www.deltamuseum.org/ for dates and times of operation, as there are commonly internal company events that cause the museum to close.

If you’re even the slightest aviation buff, this museum is a must!
