    Did you know? The museum’s historic Ford building was built for the 1935 California Pacific International Exposition, an attempt to bring jobs and tourists to the city in the midst of the Depression. Read more

    Awesome place that needs lots of time to see.. Be sure to talk to the docents! Many have worked on and/or flown the things you are seeing. (And don't eat before the simulator!!)

    One of the best Air museums there is. If you haven't been there, make it a to-do. San Diego has a very rich aeronautic history and this place will tell you all about it.

    Apollo 9 Command Service Module, call sign "Gumdrop" is on display here. Gumdrop was the first named spacecraft since the first manned Gemini mission. The crew picked Gumdrop, because of the shape.

    Make sure to visit the RAF Quonset hut in the WWII gallery! Music from the era is always playing and we have many RAF and Luftwaffe artifacts inside.

    You can visit the gift shop for free, just turn left instead of right. If you like planes, they probably have a model of one of your favorites.

    A toggle switch was broken on the Eagle moon lander during the Apollo XI mission by Armstrong's backpack. The steel pen on exhibit here was used to close the circuit allowing the engines to fire. Read more

    Awesome! Compares well to Air and Space in DC. Leave about an hour for it. Great even for young kids.

    Huge disappointment. Do not go in here if you expect European standards. This is all very plasticy and praises war.
