💁🏻‍♀️ WHAT IS IT

The San Diego Air & Space Museum at Balboa Park has a large collection of airplanes: old ones, new ones, fighter planes and biplanes. Only a couple of these allow you to actually get inside, but just being surrounded by their large presence above and all around you is quite inspiring, especially for budding little pilots. Don't miss the space collection with the real life Apollo 9 Command Module and my favorite is the piece of moon-rock on display.



💗 WHY KIDS LOVE IT

  • climb inside the helicopter

  • watch a short 4D movie

  • try the flight simulator

  • tons of planes!

  • the gift shop has a large selection of books, toys & apparel


👉 GOOD TO KNOW

There's a cafe in the very back with outdoor patio seating, right underneath the SAN flight path.
