Following San Diego County Public Health Authority guidance the Museum will be temporarily closed starting July 7, 2020.
On March 16th, in response to concerns regarding COVID-19 and based on recommendations from the California Department of Public Health, the San Diego Air & Space Museum closed to the general public. As an organization that thrives on providing a world-class guest experience, not being able to welcome visitors to the museum is particularly challenging. But, we have faced challenging times before and have come back stronger for it.
As many of you know, much of the Museum’s collection was tragically lost to a fire in 1978. With the support of the City of San Diego, members, volunteers, donors, staff and board members, the rebuilding effort began immediately and the museum reopened in 1980.
Now as then, we continue to work behind the scenes to carry out our mission to preserve, educate, celebrate and inspire. Our team is providing fun and educational content through our website and social media channels. Check out SDASM TV, Ask a Pilot and our STEM Challenges. We are also actively planning for reopening the museum by reviewing current, and implementing new, safety measures to keep you and our staff and volunteers protected. We look forward to welcoming you back! Until then, there are several ways you can continue to support the San Diego Air & Space Museum.
Until we can welcome you back to the San Diego Air & Space Museum, stay safe, and we look forward to seeing you soon.
