Delta Air Lines announced Friday that its company museum in two historic 1940s hangars on its corporate campus near Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport will undergo a $6.3 renovation funded by a Delta Air Lines Foundation grant.

Enhancements for what will be renamed the Delta Flight Museum will include a new welcome theater, installation of an elevator and construction of a mezzanine level. It also will become one of the largest full-service event rental spaces in the metro area.

The project is scheduled to be completed before Delta’s 85th anniversary of commercial aviation service on June 17, 2014.

The museum, which showcases historic planes and displays on the air line’s history, is expected to remain open by appointment during renovation: 404-773-1219, www.deltamuseum.org. HOWARD POUSNER
