The San Diego Air & Space Museum
I’ve been trying to take the kiddos on a new adventure once a week. We’ve had some new fun experiences and two weeks ago we visited one of the coolest museums in So Cal. A good friend of mine was going to take her kiddos to the San Diego Air & Space Museum and asked if I wanted to tag along. How could I not tag along? I said of course, packed some goodies and embarked on a little adventure down South.
The Air & Space Museum is a must visit!
I was impressed from the moment we parked. There is a parking lot located right next to the museum and it is free of charge. We visited on a Friday morning and we easily found a spot. We were oohing and ahhing from the moment we set foot inside. The museum has every type of aircraft imaginable and does an amazing job educating the public about aviation’s history. Not to mention it is just pretty darn cool to be able to be around so many amazing airplanes. The kiddos were equally impressed!

We spent about two hours at the museum, but we could have easily stayed for three. The place is amazing! The museum has dozens and dozens of aircraft. It was interesting to learn all about the advances in technology in a fun environment.
You can check out every kind of aircraft imaginable!
The Kids Aviation Action Hangar is a must stop when you visit. The kiddos loved being able to play with a simulator , pretend they were bouncing on the moon, and even partake in some arts and crafts. They absolutely loved every bit of our visit!

If you’re looking for something to do that is a little different with the kiddos, make sure to visit the San Diego Air & Space Museum. You guys will have a great time! Oh and I would highly recommend grabbing lunch at their Flight Path Cafe. I wish I would have taken a picture of this charming cafe. The Flight Path Cafe is called that, because it literally is on the San Diego’s Airport flight path. About every minute or two you will have a full size jetliner roar by as it makes its descent onto the runway. It was soooooooooo fun! The kiddos(moms too!) were giddy with excitement as each one roared by. It felt like they were going to land right on top of us! I can’t wait to do it again!
The girls couldn’t help themselves. They all stood in front of their favorite flight attendant uniform.
Can’t wait to visit again!
The Museum is open seven days a week and is located inside of Balboa Park. The museum offers free admission to San Diego County Residents on the fourth Tuesday of the month. For additional information head here.
