Tourism For Locals: Fly Away at SFO's Free Museum

Airports can seem a bit drab and deprived of cultural stimulation — the massively high ceilings supported by steel beam colonnades of many of the world's airports can make these transit environments appear distant and cold.

But like everything else in San Francisco, our airport makes an effort to be different and it tries to bring a bit of Bay Area humanity and savvy into those hollow waiting rooms and terminal corridors.San Francisco International Airport has been bringing education and fun (yes, airports can be like this) for the past 34 years.

So while you're waiting to board your next flight, you can let your imagination take flight at the San Francisco Airport Commission Aviation Library and Louis A. Turpen Aviation Museum — the first and only museum in an airport to receive accreditation from the American Alliance of Museums.
