Every year the San Diego Air & Space Museum offers the most festive atmosphere in all of Balboa Park during "December Nights," and this year is even better!

On December 1 and 2, the San Diego Air & Space Museum offers free admission for "December Nights" from 3:30 to 10:30 p.m. (Last admission at 10:00 p.m.) There will be live musical performances by singing sensations the “Rockin’ Cranberries,” festive decorations and lighting, family photo opportunities with Santa Claus, crafts for kids of all ages, fun food choices from the Flight Path Grill in our heated Pavilion, and the most accessible and enjoyable beverage garden in the park.

Explore our innovative motion simulators and exciting 3D/4D theater, the only one of its kind in Balboa Park.

And don’t forget to stop by the Museum’s store to pick up unique holiday gifts for the aviation and space enthusiasts in your life. The Museum’s Library & Archives also will be selling used aviation and space-themed books and magazines during "December Nights."

We look forward to seeing you for "December Nights!"

Please note: Because the Museum will be free and open to the public for two nights (December 1 and 2) during the "December Nights" event, the San Diego Air & Space Museum will not be observing a Residents Free Tuesday in December.
