Ship 6301 at dawn

We are very excited to announce that our Boeing 747-400, Ship 6301, opens to the public on Tuesday, March 28th!  The plane will open to Delta employees, retirees, their families, and the public from 1-4 p.m., following a press event in the morning. On Wednesday, March 29th, we continue the celebration of the 747 Experience by opening the plane and museum hangars from 12 noon-4 p.m. on a day we’re normally closed.  

Admission on these two days will be $7.47 for everyone, with the exception of Delta employees, retirees, their PPRs, and military who are always free with ID.

Starting Thursday March 30the 747 is open 12 noon-4 p.m. every day the Museum is open (Thursdays-Tuesdays, closed Wednesdays). 

With the addition of the 747 Experience, we are increasing our admission prices to the following:

  • Adults (ages 18-64) = $15
  • Seniors (ages 65+) = $12.50
  • Youths (ages 5-17) = $10
  • Children (ages 0-4) = Free
  • Groups (10+ people) = $10

Because of the size of the plane, we will not offer private 747 tours during normal hours. However, we have two tour time slots available: 10-10:45 a.m. and 11-11:45 a.m. Private tours are available for $150 plus admission, and the plane can hold up to 100 people. To book your private tour or group visit, please call us at (404) 715-7886.

In addition to private tour slots in the morning and public access in the afternoon, the 747 is available for evening event rentals. If interested in renting this premium space, please contact Director of Sales LaVerne Brown at

We’re very excited about this new addition to the Museum fleet, and hope you get a chance to visit soon!

    In 1988 I worked for Boeing in the Fight Test Weight and Balance group.  I flew on "RT401" to Moses Lake to load it for a max. take off weight test.  I stayed on the plane for the test that included 3G wind up turns and negative G push overs.  Fun, but I was pretty sick by the time we got back to Seattle.  Experience of a lifetime though.
