Balboa Park is home to beautiful gardens and natural vegetation, notable theaters, the world-renowned San Diego Zoo, and a number of San Diego museums. The San Diego Museum of Art is among the most popular Balboa Park museums. As the region’s oldest and largest art museum, it features master works from around the world but is best known for its Spanish art collection. Nearby, the San Diego Natural History Museum features dinosaur fossils, interactive exhibits, and a selection of 3D films. Be sure to stop by the San Diego Air & Space Museum, too. Housed in the former Ford Building, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the museum offers visitors a glimpse into aviation and space travel, not to mention historic aircrafts and a flight simulator.
