"In 1986 the Museum became the first aero-themed museum to be accredited by the American Association of Museums, and it is now a Smithsonian affiliate.
The California Legislature voted to declare the Museum “California’s official Air and Space Museum and Education Center.
Because of San Diego’s contributions to aviation and aerospace history and technology, it is only fitting that the Museum is now recognized as one of the country’s premier aerospace museums."
In 2006, 2006 the Museum’s name became San Diego Air & Space Museum.
