The San Diego Air & Space Museum plans to safely re-open to the public on the very first day it is allowed to welcome guests back in by County and State health officials, just like it did twice last year.

Reopening will provides guests a fun, educational and inspirational experience so needed during this time of great challenge.

Accordingly, the Museum will be adhering to the safety measures established by the State and County for a safe re-opening to the public, including but not limited to: capacity limits, social distancing, requiring facemasks for guests and employees, hand sanitizer stations, advising guests and staff who are not feeling well to stay home, continuous cleaning and sanitizing of the Museum, and more.

“The safety of our staff and guests is and always has been our number one priority,” said President & CEO Jim Kidrick. “Our team is excited to once again provide the world-class experience everyone who visits the San Diego Air & Space Museum deserves. Each time we’ve been closed, we’ve worked since the very first day we closed to ensure the Museum is a safe and welcoming destination. We’re confident we’ve done everything possible to safely welcome guests back to the Museum. It’s time for us to re-connect with old friends and make some new ones.”

Museum staff screen daily through a state-of-the-art thermal scanner prior to entering the museum.

After closing on March 16, the Museum eventually re-opened on June 12, but was once again forced to close on July 7 due to health concerns related to the spread of the Coronavirus. After re-opening briefly, the Museum was once again forced to re-close on November 14.

“We’ve been fortunate each time we’ve re-opened, because our guests and our staff have a true understanding of what it takes to remain safe and healthy,” added Kidrick. “We’re committed to doing whatever it takes to once again provide a similar environment moving forward.”
