Moon Base San Diego

Moon Base San Diego, sponsored by the Walter J. & Betty C. Zable Foundation & Las Patronas, is a new family-friendly activity and education center offering hands–on, interactive and immersive learning activities for explorers of all ages who want to experience a trip to the Moon, has launched at the San Diego Air & Space Museum in Balboa Park, and you're invited to join the fun!

 Moon Base San Diego’s habitat immerses families in life on the Moon with living quarters and a lunar surface they can experience and explore. Children visit a NASA lunar lander capsule, taking on the roles of pilot and astronaut. An interactive wall gamifies learning about life on the Moon. In the center of the room, children of all ages can sit and interact around tables teeming with interactive learning materials. 
Other areas of interest include a book nook, desk space, and a Moon habitat. Key elements to the room are the printed vinyl wall and floor graphics that will provide visual interest and unify the moon-focused theme.

The Museum invites families to experience life on the Moon and expose them to the opportunity of STEM careers in aerospace. School field trips and summer camps also will benefit from the learning activities in Moon Base San Diego. Thank you to the Walter J. & Betty C. Zable Foundation & Las Patronas for sponsoring this special exhibition.
