Hartfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) has an intensive collection of art and history famous during the domestic and international terminals areas, in all seven concourses, and in connecting walkways between concourses.

Here are only a few of the portions in ATL’s art and history collection:

Photos and artifacts pay tribute to Civil Rights leaders John Lewis (Domestic Atrium) and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (Concourse E).

Flight Paths, through Steve Waldeck (in the underground walkway between Concourses A and B) simulates the points of interest and sounds of a walk thru a Georgia wooded area.

Elsewhere, you’ll find a collection of Zimbabwean stone sculptures, a selection of photographs from National Geographic’s Photo Ark venture, and lots of extra permanent and temporary exhibitions.

2. Kid stuff at ATL

Kids will enjoy finding a number of the cool and quirky art reveals at ATL, along with the Lunch Box Time Capsule exhibit at the boarding level of Concourse E (near Gate E14).

Fun too: a trip at the airport’s Plane Train. Just make sure to get a gap inside the front or back car for a groovy view of the tunnels between concourses.

ATL is domestic to the World’s Largest Hudson shop, that's in reality a set of stores within a store. In addition to Georgia-themed-souvenirs, you’ll locate antique-faculty candy, masses of books and even some vinyl records.

The two big canopies over the north and south aspects of the domestic terminal at ATL are part of a multi-billion greenback capital improvement assignment.

Each cover is sort of 900 ft long – the length of nearly 3 soccer fields. In addition to being water-resistant, the translucent arches also can be lit up in a huge kind of colorations.

5. Lav lighting fixtures at ATL

Two pairs of restrooms (at Gates B18 & B23) use purple or inexperienced lighting to signal while a restroom stall is occupied or empty. (Brilliant!) The gadget additionally tracks restroom usage so the janitorial staff knows whilst a lav wishes to be wiped clean. A best partnership among TRAX and Tooshlights and ATL.
