The Delta Flight Museum is ready when you are.

That constitutes a major route change for one of Atlanta’s more interesting but lesser-known attractions, which mainly has welcomed Delta “family” and in-the-know aviation aficionados since its opening beside Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in 1995.

The renovated 68,000-square-foot edifice that chronicles Delta’s history and the development of commercial aviation is set to officially relaunch on Tuesday in a grand opening ceremony to include remarks by Gov. Nathan Deal, Mayor Kasim Reed and Delta CEO Richard Anderson.
