Education Overview

About the Education Department

Education is the number one priority of the San Diego Air & Space Museum. Through our guided tours, museum classes, outreach programs, competitions, and much more, visitors of all ages can be inspired and educated in science, history, technology, art and world culture.

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, we have something for you!

By engaging senses and deductive skills, we not only pass on knowledge, we also help our 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 only our museum can offer, our visitors become increasingly motivated to learn. We hope this motivation is part of a lifetime of learning!

The San Diego Air & Space Museum offers a variety of group and individual activities that are tailored to meet the needs of specific grade levels. All programs correlate with the State of California’s Academic Content Standards for Science, Math, History/Social Science, and/or Language Arts, as well as the Science Framework for California Public Schools.

Thank you for making the San Diego Air & Space Museum part of your learning experience --- we look forward to seeing you very soon!
