Sfo Aviation Museum Reviews & Ratings
Amazing architecture and history. Designed to look like the original SF Airport when it opened. In International A Terminal pre-security
A quiet place in the corner with some interesting exhibits and a library. Great way to spend 30 min at the airport
A small but nicely curated space. If you have a bit of time before your flight, pop in there for a few minutes. There are also free standing exhibits spread out throughout the international terminal. The museum also sometimes hosts events. I visited during a Working for SFO workshop and the space accommodated a fair amount of students and job seekers.
Great little hideaway from the airport hustle and bustle.
Small interesting museum within the San Francisco airport. The early terminal is their main exhibition space with other displays throughout the terminal.
