The San Diego Air & Space Museum in Balboa Park is California’s official air and space museum and education center. Aviation and military buffs can spend hours at the museum exploring its dozens of full-size jets, historic aircraft and spacecraft, including a real Apollo 9 command module. The highlights of this museum also include the International Aerospace Hall of Fame and the 3D/4D theater that shows aviation and space-related films.
Aviation history is truly a remarkable story, and it all unfolds at the San Diego Air & Space Museum.
