Delta Flight Museum
1060 Delta Boulevard, Building B, Atlanta, GA 30354
The Delta Flight Museum is an aviation and corporate museum in Atlanta, near the airline's main hub at the Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport. The museum is housed in two 1940s-era Delta Air Lines maintenance hangars, which were used until the 1960s. The museum is a nonprofit organization and relies on volunteers, donations, special event rentals and Museum Store sales.
In Hangar One is the Monroe Cafe, a full-scale replica of Delta's former Monroe, Louisiana headquarters. It served as Delta's headquarters from 1934 to 1941, when headquarters were moved to Atlanta. The "hub" of Hangar One is the Delta Archives. It houses more than 200,000 images, 1,000 films, one of the world's largest airline uniform collections, as well as an aviation reference library. Hangar 1 also houses several of the museum's restored aircraft, which include Delta Ship 41, Delta's first passenger-carrying DC-3, a 1931 Travel Air 6000, a Huff-Daland Duster biplane replica and a 1936 Stinson Reliant SE.
Hangar 2 houses Delta Ship 102, the company's first Boeing 767-200. Additional items in Hangar 2 include the forward fuselage of the prototype Lockheed L-1011, the cockpit section of a Convair 880, the tail section of a Douglas DC-9, and a 737 flight simulator.
