The San Diego Air & Space Museum officially re-opened to the public on March 17, the first day the Museum was allowed guests back following County and State health officials and guidelines.
Reopening provides guests from around the world and locally a fun, educational and inspirational experience so needed during this time of great challenge.
Accordingly, the Museum is adhering to the 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 remains our number one priority, period! However, our team is also very anxious to once again provide the world-class experience everyone who visits the San Diego Air & Space Museum deserves,” said Jim Kidrick, President & CEO of the Museum. “Both times 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 connect with new ones.”
Museum staff screen daily through a state-of-the-art thermal scanner prior to entering the museum.
“We’ve been fortunate both 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 nurture that environment moving forward.”
