Even though the Museum remains closed to the public on a temporary basis (we're really hoping to re-open soon!), that hasn’t stopped the Museum’s expert Special Events team from continuing to re-imagine how we’ll be able to host one-of-a-kind events in the future.
The Museum is unique because of its spacious layout, particularly its open-air Pavilion of Flight and its back patio, home to the Flight Path Grill and its magnificent views of San Diego’s beautiful downtown skyline. The Museum’s open taxi-way at its Annex at Gillespie Field in El Cajon also is a future possibility for hosting special events adjacent to an active airport runway. When it comes to your next special event, the sky is the limit at the San Diego Air & Space Museum!
Below are some of the unique and wonderful outings the Museum will have to offer when the time is right.

Here is a list of preferred caterers who have experience working in one of San Diego’s most memorable settings.
