Following San Diego County Public Health Authority guidance the Museum will be temporarily closed starting July 7, 2020.
With the support of our friends and superb leadership by our staff, the vibrant culture of the San Diego Air & Space Museum shines brightly. Way back in 1978 the Museum recovered from a disastrous fire, and once again our team rose to the occasion to ensure an on-time reopening in response to an international pandemic. Because of our team’s extraordinary efforts we were the 1st and only Museum to reopen on June 12, the first day permitted in San Diego County. WOW! Our team had been preparing from the first day of our temporary closing to reopen as soon as was allowed…and it showed in their preparation and enthusiasm. They are rightfully proud of their accomplishment and success.
The San Diego Air & Space Museum is a national and international treasure, and welcoming back guests, providing them a fun, learning and inspirational experience is what we do best…but only with the help of many; Thank you!
The safety of our staff, volunteers and guests remains our number one priority, period! However, our team has also been very anxious to once again provide the world class experience everyone who visits the Museum expects and deserves.
We literally began working on our San Diego County Safe Reopening Plan the day we temporarily closed, to ensure the Museum is a safe, welcoming destination. We’re confident we’ve done everything possible, and now it’s time for us to re-connect with old friends and begin making new ones.
The Museum adheres to the safety measures established by the State and County for a safe reopening to the public. They include but are not limited to; capacity limits, social distancing, the wearing of facial protection 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 much, much more. It’s now key to our daily routines.
The Museum also provides complimentary stylus pens for guests to use on single-person interactive displays. They’re a big hit with our guests as you would imagine. The Museum also rearranged many of the displays on its floors to provide for wider walkways and easier access eliminating inherent ‘tight’ walking spaces.
Keeping the safety of our employees and volunteers at the forefront is a must. Prior to entering the Museum every staff member self-screens daily through a state-of-the-art thermal temperature scanner. It’s kind of techy and fun and provides an additional layer of safety for staff, volunteers and guests.
Bottom line our reopening has been spectacular…so come soon and see us! We MISS you!
