December Nights 2013

Come to the San Diego Air & Space Museum and celebrate the 35th Annual December Nights! During the evenings of December 6th and 7th, you can experience the following fun activities:


Fly Your Ride! Competition

Welcome to the Flying Car competition! We are looking forward to seeing your imaginative ideas. The idea, and the rules, are simple. Build a vehicle, let it slide down a ramp, and see if it can jump a gap!


Ripley’s Closing Soon

The Ripley's Believe It or Not! exhibit is currently on display at the San Diego Air & Space Museum with weird, wacky, shocking and amazing items--don't miss it because it closes January 4, 2015!


50 Years of Excellence

It seems like only yesterday, but it’s been 50 years since the San Diego Aerospace Museum opened its doors for the first time. Since then, we’ve moved twice, added an annex at Gillespie Field, acquired the original Consolidated Aircraft Wind Tunnel, and increased our aircraft collection from six to more than 120. But most importantly, we’ve positively impacted more than 15 million people—providing a world-class learning experience and inspiring youth to excel in their lives.


Gift Ideas 2014

Give a unique aviation gift at a great price, all while helping inspire future generations with the majesty of flight, with the gift of membership at the San Diego Air & Space Museum.


Rare Atlas Collection

The San Diego Air & Space Museum received a historic Atlas space launch vehicle film collection donation from Lockheed Martin and United Launch Alliance (ULA), totaling approximately 3,000 reels of 16-millimeter film. The collection is being digitized by the Museum and will be made available online for worldwide public access.


Curatorial Updates

Plans are underway to add content to the WWI exhibit area in commemoration of the start of the “Great War” 100 years ago. Audio-video components and mannequins in period uniforms will highlight our already superior gallery. The Museum is also talking about creating an exhibit detailing the history of the reconnaissance camera, displaying the Museum’s collection of more than twenty such devices.


Mysteries at the Museum

The San Diego Air & Space Museum will be featured on two upcoming episodes of the Travel Channel's Mysteries at the Museum. Be sure to tune-in!
