Aviation history is truly a remarkable story, and it all unfolds at the San Diego Air & Space Museum! 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. From there you’ll travel through flight history until the modern era. The Museum’s display of space age technology, like the desire to journey to the stars, may never be finished, for it represents an adventure which the human race has truly just begun!
Balboa Park is the largest urban cultural park in the United States. The Air & Space Museum shares the park with 14 other museums, many highly regarded performing arts venues, gardens and the world-famous San Diego Zoo. All parking is free in Balboa Park. The San Diego Air & Space Museum lot is located in front of the building, just steps from the entrance, accessible at President’s Way off of Park Boulevard. Food and beverages are not permitted in the Museum, but there are many beautiful areas to picnic in Balboa Park. Your students will love their visit to this amazing museum!
