Atlanta might have one of the busiest airports in the world, but we have one hometown airline – Delta Air Lines. At the Delta Flight Museum, learn about the Atlanta based airline at their recently renovated museum. The museum is located at Delta Headquarters steps from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

1. Experience the rich history of Delta Air Lines. See planes dating back to the 1920s, including a Waco 125 Biplane and a 1940 Douglas DC-3. Kids can take a scavenger hunt exploring exhibits at the museum.

2. Get up-close and personal with some massive airplanes. The first-built 747 has recently been added to the already impressive collection of planes. Tour the 747 12pm-4pm Thursday-Tuesday.
