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

6 planes, an old hangar, and a minimalist webpage. Here’s what it really is: jobs and contracts for friends of the board and a way to hold extremely valuable real estate at the airport without any hassle from shareholders to sell it.

Too bad Delta put it inside their campus. It’s very inaccessible and generally a hassle to get to.

Didn’t even know they had one. Now I want to go to it. Hope there is an exhibit on the finger wagging redhead in their recent flight safety videos. Gorgeous and funny.
