Annual Fund - Bringing the Excitement of Flight to Life

Annual Fund gifts provide vital support for the development of quality exhibits and innovative educational programs that define the Museum and serve local, national and international audiences.

We invite you to share our pride in the Museum's mission by supporting the Annual Fund. Gifts at all levels are greatly appreciated.

With an annual contribution of $500 or more, Mercury Club Members have the opportunity to participate in programs such as:

  • Private receptions with noted aerospace leaders

Become an active part of the Museum. Help us expand our exhibits and add new interactive experiences or choose to help us make new educational opportunities available to children seriously lacking in science, technology and math skills. There is so much more to be done and we need your help to continue. You'll make a permanent impact on a unique Museum.

The San Diego Aerospace Museum is the premier aviation and aerospace venue in the southwestern United States and one of the leading Museums of its kind within the entire country.

But we're not content to sit still! We're on the move and we need your help! We're expanding our educational programs, launching an ambitious lecture series focusing upon space exploration and adding important new additions to our exhibits! For example, in spring 2004, a reproduction World War I Sopwith Pup fighter, built by Museum volunteers to exacting original standards, will join our exhibits. We're also bringing you a new opportunity learn to fly at the Aerospace Museum a comprehensive course based upon the popular King Schools curriculum and augmented by our extensive resources, including FAA-Certified flight instructors, interactive applications and cockpit experiences in vintage aircraft.

One of the most exciting new exhibits west of the Rockies is also coming your way. In late January 2004, the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C., notified us that we will receive the Apollo 9 command module! While in earth orbit, this historically significant spacecraft helped astronauts pioneer the Lunar Lander concept or Lunar Excursion Module so necessary for landing on the Moon. Both new exhibits, the Sopwith Pup and Apollo 9, each representing beginnings in our century-long love affair with flight, will be on display soon in the newly renovated Rotunda.

We were chosen to exhibit the Apollo 9 spacecraft because of our commitment to excellence. This same commitment has brought us recognition from the local and national media. The History Channel features the Museum regularly and the local media seeks our staff and volunteers as recognized experts in a host of topics.
