  • Visited this museum March 2019. It is at the Airport but if you are visiting without a car from central Atlanta then here's a few tips on how to get there. Firstly, don't go to the MARTA station at th...  more »
  • The Delta Flight Museum is a clean facility and has nice staff. But I think this museum is missing something. Oh yes, planes! That was an over exaggeration because there was 2 planes available for you...  more »
  • We had an afternoon flight with an early check out at our hotel so we decided to check out the Delta Museum. We were very surprised with the quality of the displays and the way Delta's history was pre...  more »

  • A fun place to visit in the Atlanta area. A great history of Delta and wonderful aircraft displays, many you can tour inside. The prices are reasonable and military (active, retired and dependents) are free. The 1st Tuesday of the month is a guided tour at 1:00 by a retired Delta employee. Different aircraft are open on various days so check the schedule. You park on Delta property and guns are prohibited so be sure they are secured before entry. You have to sign in at the lot entrance and everyone must show an ID.
  • I am an aircraft mechanic by trade and love the field of aviation. So its no wonder that i enjoy going to any aviation museum. You can actually walk through the static displays (747 & 767). You can smell and see the history of these planes. The museum has a massive model collection from the days past. It also has a computer flight sim that is great for the family and if you able to afford it, you can reserve time for the only 737-200 working pilot simulator that was once used by delta pilots. A must! Plus assortment of historical items from days gone past. The price of this museum is $15, but well worth the cost.
  • This is such an amazing place! I love that they have "The Spirit of Delta" and the 747 open to tour inside. Seeing the history of where the airline started and how it has evolved was spectacular! I definitely recommend it!
  • It’s a cool place to see the evolution of Delta fleets. Actual hands on approach is available to the paying public. The only downside is that there’s no Braille on any of the information consoles. Nor are there any captions available on their videos. ADA law has been in effect since 1990 and still to this day, it has not been thought out clearly for the patrons who may be blind and/or Deaf.
  • Cool place to visit if you’re an aviation fan(Delta fan). It basically shows every thing about Delta, like the history about it. It’s cool that you can have a look inside the cockpit, but you gotta keep one thing in mind, you can’t touch anything in the cockpit. The 747 displays at the parking lot is a bit disappointed, they didn’t display too much interesting thing in the plane, what I mean is if you had ever taken a flight before, it’s basically how it looks like in the cabin. General admission is like 15 dollars, which is really no big deal, and it’s located right next to ATL airport, so you can see actual planes on the ramp, taking off, and landing while you are visiting this museum.
