San Diego Air and Space Museum Reviews
Interesting but small Apr 10, 2009
I am a bit of a military nerd so the sleek SR-71 outside this museum got me really excited to get inside and check it out.
The inside of the museum is filled with all sorts of aircraft and air craft related artifacts from a variety of different time periods and conflicts. The exhibits flow the rounded walls of the building a chronological order from the earliest days of flight into the near modern age. In the center of the museum is a large bright courtyard with an opaque glass roof with paths that wind by a number of aircraft mounted along the walls (and a gorgeous but out-of-place antique car.)
I did find the museum to be a bit dark over all, and quite small. What it does have is very interesting but the this make the price a bit steep (whereas it would be reasonable for a larger place of equal quality.)
