About
Experience aviation's history from the Wright Flyer to the Space Shuttle and beyond...The San Diego Aerospace Museum brings to life aviation's rich heritage through a dazzling collection of over 65 U.S. and foreign aircraft and spacecraft on display for your educational enjoyment.

Glimpse the dawn of powered flight at Kittyhawk. Recapture the days of aerial combat during World War I, when fighter planes like the Spad, the Nieuport and the Albatros flew the skies over France. Enjoy the Golden Age of Barnstorming and the first mail plane, a Curtiss JN-4 "Jenny."

Take to the skies in World War II when Spitfires, ME 109s, Zeros and Hellcats were fighting to rule the skies over Europe and the vast Pacific area. Burst into the Jet Age with the A-4 Skyhawk, the F-4 Phantom and the record-setting spy plane, the Blackbird.

A tour of the museum also includes the International Aerospace Hall of Fame where our aero-engineers, pilots and aviation industrialists are honored. It was their vision that created the aircraft and spacecraft that comprise our nation's marvelous aviation history.
