Delta Flight Museum

Field review by the editors.

Atlanta, Georgia

This company museum is dedicated to preserving the history of Delta Airlines, located inside its two most historic airplane hangers (built in 1941). Artifacts include vintage uniforms, aircraft models, and an exhibit on crop dusting (Delta began as a crop dusting outfit).

Learn about Birdie Perkins, the first stewardess on Delta, and see fun memorabilia, such as 1960s dolls dressed in hand-sewn stewardess outfits.

The museum's aircraft highlights are Ship 102, the airline's first 767, whose interior serves as a museum within a museum; and Ship 41, "the finest DC-3 in existence," which was built in 1940 and tracked down in 1991 when it was flying cargo for Air Puerto Rico.

In 2017 the museum raised its admission price and opened the "747 Experience," a real 747 jet that visitors can explore. Parts of the plane's floor have been replaced with plexiglass to show off its piping and wires, and tourists can walk to the upper deck flight attendant bunks, into the cockpit, and out onto the wing.
