Science, space and aviation history all become real at the San Diego Air and Space Museum: California’s official air and space museum!

This venue is a dynamic monument built to celebrate aviation and space flight, to educate the public about aviation’s social and historical significance, and to inspire students to excel in technology, mathematics and the sciences. As San Diego is one of the great American aviation hubs, it’s only natural to pay a visit to this unique museum when you are in the area.

Your journey through the history of flight at the San Diego Air and Space Museum begins as you stand beneath a model of the Montgolfier brothers’ hot air balloon of 1783: the first manned vehicle in recorded history to break the bonds of gravity and lift humans above the Earth.

In the Golden Age of Flight Gallery, get a sense of the danger of air combat and marvel at the entertaining and risky antics of the barnstormers of the 1920s. And of course, no visit to the San Diego Air and Space Museum is complete without feeling like your flying in the unique 3D/4D Zable Theater.

Comments about Smart Destinations Air and Space Museum:

This is a super museum. However, lighting needs to be better - in many areas (especially in the area where the astronauts photos are displayed)it was almost impossible to read the descriptions under the photos. Well laid out and accessible.

Fun for kids and adults alike!
By Wade the blade Verified Reviewer from Anaheim, CA on

Comments about Smart Destinations Air and Space Museum:

Fun place for kids who dreamed of flying in the air. Experience the simulator! Explore the history of flight, from the simplest contraptions to radar-hidden jets. Very educational for adults as well.
