The Delta Flight Museum will reopen to visitors starting July 1. Since 1995, the museum has welcomed visitors from around the world to explore aviation history, celebrate the story and people of Delta and discover the future of flight.
The museum will be open on a temporarily modified basis, Thursdays through Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The museum's Boeing 747 will be open to visitors on the same days from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Face masks will be required in museum buildings and aircraft.
The Delta Flight Museum has been closed since March 14, 2020, because of COVID-19 pandemic. Since that time, it has been a socially distanced Delta Air Lines reservation call center and a COVID-19 testing and vaccination site for Delta employees. A GEMA-run mass vaccination site, for the public, operated in the museum parking lot.
'We're excited to open our doors to visitors after 15 months,' Tiffany Meng, Director - Operations, said. 'The museum will be open modified hours, but as we continue to monitor COVID-19's progression, we hope to add Mondays and Tuesdays back to the schedule in August.'
In the heart of Delta's Atlanta headquarters, the Delta Flight Museum exhibits propeller and jet planes and a flight simulator. Guided tours and group reservations are paused until the regular schedule begins. However, the Delta Flight Museum is currently booking meetings and events. Museum visitors can find the designated parking area at the east entrance gate.
The flight simulator will offer three reservation slots per day, limited to two guest per reservation. You can purchase tickets and make reservations on deltamuseum.org.
The Delta Flight Museum will continue to host a CVS-run vaccination site through July 15. Vaccines are available to the public with no appointment necessary.
