Hi,
I´m traveling to Atlanta next week for 4 days and I would like to know if there are any Aviation Museums in there? I heard Atlanta is full of museums, so I imagine there may be one. If there is, what are the aicrafts exposed? Is there anything else interesting (a must see or something) do to in ATL rather than CNN, and Georgia sightseeing?
Thanks,
Adam
PS: I´m buying there a new digital camera so be sure to have a detailed trip report with lots and lots of pics.  Smile

There's a Delta museum in ATL, but if I'm not mistaken it's only open to employees and their families. And don't miss the Coke Museum. Athens is a pretty neat place too  thumbsup

Nope, other than the Delta Museum, which is pretty much open to Delta employees and retirees only, there's not any aviation museums in Atlanta. The closest aviation museum is the Museum of Aviation at Robins AFB south of Macon and is about 2 hours south of Atlanta.

Why in the world is the DL musuem only open to employees? I know it's inside the gate to corporate headquarters, but it seems kinda ridiculus to have a museum you're not going to open up to the public.


Last year 1,944 New Yorkers saw something and said something.

Thank you guys, I´m definitely including the Coke museum in my itinerary. It´s pretty weird to have a "museum" open only to employees and retirees. Well, I guess I have to go one day to DC.
Thanks,
Adam

I wouldn't get too excited about the Coke museum. It's one of those places I always take friends and family when they visit, and they are usually "underwhelmed" by it....

The reason the DL museum is open to the public is there really isn't much there yet. It only has three planes and a few small history displays. In time it will grow and will be open to the public. I'd skip the World of Coke also, unless you are really into Coke advertising. The Air Force museum in Warner-Robbins is worth the trip if you have the time. The have just about every cargo plane the Air Force ever flew and also an SR-71.
