Housed in the historic Ford Motor Building, which was built in 1933 for the California American Exposition, the San Diego Air & Space Museum takes visitors on a journey through time and space. Displays range from an authentic reproduction of the Wright Brothers’ 1903 flier, to a WWII Supermarine Spitfire—one of the few still in existence—to NASA’s Apollo 9 Command Module.
In addition to the displays, the museum has a Flight Simulator Ride and a VIP Restoration Tour. The Morphis ESP MovieRide Theater is an eight-seat, motion-based simulator that can duplicate a variety of rides, including a flight on a P-51 Mustang or a walk in space. On the VIP Restoration Tour, visitors are taken to see the shop where volunteer craftsmen build or restore planes and engines for the museum—in fact, 25% of the museum’s inventory were built from scratch or painstakingly restored by these volunteers.
