Half-Off Admission at Over 40 San Diego Museums in February

Pick up a Museum Month pass to get yourself and three guests entry for half the price!

Macy’s Museum Month gives patrons a chance to discover what’s new at more than 40 San Diego museums with savings only seen once a year. Starting February 1, participants can pick up a Museum Month Pass at any area Macy’s store to enjoy half-off admission to all of the participating museums through the entire month of February.

Now is a perfect time to visit San Diego’s best museums. In April 2015, the San Diego was recognized by the National Geographic Channel documentary, “World’s Smart Cities: San Diego,” where the region gained applause for its lifestyle rich in art, cultural diversity and natural beauty.

“San Diego is a rich arts and culture destination and we couldn’t be more proud to celebrate Macy’s Museum Month,” said Theresa Kosen, executive director of the San Diego Museum Council. “The heart of our local museum community blossomed in Balboa Park over a century ago and today we stand as an extraordinary footprint of museums located as far north as the Oceanside Museum of Art in the City of Oceanside and south toward the Tijuana Estuary at the International border. Our thanks go to sponsors like Macy’s who make February an exciting time to visit San Diego’s museums.”

Macy’s Museum Month was created in 1989 to promote awareness of the region’s museums, historical sites, educational institutions, and cultural offerings. This month-long promotion has grown to become a cultural tradition unrivaled in the United States. Last year nearly 30,000 visitors used a Macy’s Museum Month Pass to enjoy half-priced admissions at San Diego area museums.

The pass is good for you and three guests!
