Visitor Tips & Guidelines

We’ve pulled together a list of tips to make your next visit a great one. If you have any questions that aren’t answered throughout this website, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at (404) 715-7886 or museum.delta@delta.com. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Parking & Security

  • The Museum’s address is 1060 Delta Blvd, Atlanta, GA 30354.  In Google Maps or your GPS, type in “33.655043, -84.420127” as your destination and you will be led to the Museum’s Security Gate entrance, located on the east side of Delta’s campus.
  • Because the Museum is located within Delta Air Lines’ General Offices, all visitors ages 18+ need to present photo identification at the Security gate to check in. You’ll then be given a Museum Visitor sticker to wear while you are here.
  • Parking is free at the Museum. Museum visitors should park in any designated “Museum Visitor” or unreserved parking spot. Handicap parking is also available. 
  • Weapons, including concealed firearms, are not permitted anywhere on Delta’s campus, including the Museum. Please leave your weapons at home or at the hotel.
  • All bags will be inspected in the admissions lobby. 

Admissions & Tours

  • Are you a Delta employee or retiree? Do you work for another airline or are in the military? Bring your work ID with you for special discounts only available at the admissions desk.
  • If you’d like to upgrade your visit, add a simulator experience to your ticket! The cost is $425 for an hour, and that is per hour, not per person. The sim seats 4 visitors (ages 16+) plus the instructor and is very realistic. After all, Delta pilots trained on this $12M machine for years while flying the B737-200. Gift certificates are also available, so give us a call if interested.
  • Every Tuesday at 1pm, we offer some sort of guided tour that is free with admission. On the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Tuesdays, we explore the hangars and history overview. On the 2nd Tuesdays, visitors are invited to don gloves and shoe covers and go inside the 1940s DC-3. On the 4th Tuesdays, the tour is all about the B747. Sometimes this schedule changes due to closures, so visit our Museum Events page for the latest updates. If the date and timing doesn’t work for you, ask about scheduling a private tour.
  • Our group admissions rate is $10 per person for groups of 10+ people. This rate is not available online. Check out our Group and School Visits page for more information.
    Tours are primarily history-based and last about an hour. They are most appropriate for ages 10+.
  • If you would like to check a large bag or coat, you may do so, free of charge, at the admissions desk.

Smoking & Food

  • Smoking and e-cigarettes are not permitted anywhere within the buildings, aircraft, or within 20 feet of a building’s entrance. Delta has designated Smoker Poles available for your cigarette disposal needs. The nearest Pole to the hangars is located next to the brick courtyard in front of Historic Hangar 1.
  • With the exception of water bottles, food and drinks may not be carried into the hangars or aircraft. We do not have a restaurant or vending machines on site. However, there is a wide variety of restaurants within a few miles’ radius, and you may leave for lunch and come back the same day. Just keep your admissions receipt!

What to Wear

  • Visitors are required to wear proper attire (as determined by Museum personnel in their sole discretion) while on Delta property. Shirts and shoes must be worn at all times.
  • Display of profane, obscene, or hateful language, texts, or graphics for public view is prohibited. Visitors displaying such language on clothing will be asked to either change the garment or otherwise cover the offensive image/language or leave the Museum property.

Photography & Social Media

  • Unless otherwise noted, photography in the Museum is allowed for personal, noncommercial purposes only. Photographs cannot be published, sold, reproduced, transferred, distributed, or otherwise commercially exploited in a manner whatsoever.

Accessibility

  • Service animals are welcome into the Museum, but other animals are not. Please read our Service Animal Policy for more information about bringing animals when you visit.
  • Personal wheelchairs and traditional electric assistance scooters are welcome at the Museum. However, upright or “Segway” scooters are not permitted.
  • If needed, guests may borrow manual wheelchairs from the admissions desk during your visit. We just ask that you leave your ID with us while the wheelchair is checked out.
  • Wheelchair accessibility within the Museum:
    • The entrance and hangars are wheelchair friendly.
    • Neither the flight simulator nor the DC-3 are wheelchair accessible.
    • The interior of The Spirit of Delta B767-200 is not wheelchair accessible. However, the Museum does have an aircraft aisle wheelchair available upon request. For liability reasons, Museum staff is not able to assist with the transference from one wheelchair to another, so please plan accordingly.
    • The interior of the 747 is mostly wheelchair accessible. There is an elevator to get up to the front door of the plane and most of the lower level is accessible. However, the upper area was not designed to accommodate wheelchairs.
    • If you are visiting as part of a meeting in the L1011 TriStar Conference Room, please note the conference room is wheelchair accessible. There is a small lift up to the mezzanine and a separate lift up to the fuselage entrance.
  • There is a Mother’s Room available upon request. Please speak with the Supervisor on duty and we will escort you to a private space.

Closures

  • The Museum is a great place to host events like corporate parties and weddings. Because of this, sometimes we need to close the hangars and/or 747 to accommodate these events. It is always a good idea to check our homepage for our list of upcoming closures. 
  • In case of inclement weather, the Museum will close the 747’s Wing Walk for the safety of all visitors.
  • The Delta Flight Museum is closed Wednesdays, Easter, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day. Please check our calendar before planning your visit around these days.

Support

  • The Delta Flight Museum is a 501c3 nonprofit organization. If you are interested in making a financial or object donation, please visit our Support page. We’d love to hear from you.
