Description

Your journey through the history of flight 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. Aviation history is truly a remarkable story, and it all unfolds at the San Diego Air & Space Museum.

San Diego has one of the richest aviation heritages of any city in the country. Convair, home of such famous aircraft as the B-24 Liberator and the PBY Catalina, was founded here. Ryan Aeronautical, home of Lindbergh’s Spirit of St. Louis, was located here, and North Island Naval Air Station is the home of naval aviation. Much of that knowledge is captured and conveyed through the San Diego Air & Space Museum, a major institution unique to the region and one of the preeminent aviation museums in the nation. Because of San Diego’s contributions to aviation and aerospace history and technology, it is only fitting that the Museum is now recognized as one of the country’s premier aerospace museums.

Whether you are a kid looking for some fun, a teacher searching for the perfect field trip, or simply seeking an interesting and fun experience, the San Diego Air & Space Museum has something for you!

By engaging senses and deductive skills, the San Diego Air & Space Museum not only passes on knowledge, they also help visitors discover for themselves by interacting with real objects, building, testing, and experimenting. By coming face to face with history and technology in the unique ways, visitors become increasingly motivated to learn.
