Science, space and aviation history all unfold at the San Diego Air & Space Museum—California’s Official Air and Space Museum. An affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution, the Museum houses a collection of historic aircraft and spacecraft from all over the world, including a working flying replica of Lindbergh's Spirit of St. Louis, the actual Apollo 9 Command Module spacecraft and the only real GPS satellite on display in the world. The Museum also offers interactive exhibits including MaxFlight® and Space Shuttle simulators plus dynamic, hands-on and ever-changing traveling exhibitions.
*Smithsonian Museum Day pass holders get free admission to the Museum's general galleries. There is an extra charge for the current special exhibition, How Things Fly... Experience the Adventure.
Participation in Museum Day is open to any tax-exempt or governmental museum or cultural venue on a voluntary basis.
