Two Paws up for Half-Price Museum Admission!

Museum of Man, California Tower, Balboa Park, Museum Month 2013While any “Dog with a Blog” can scribe about their family’s daily hijinks, it takes a special breed (i.e., me) to keep visitors up to date on the latest and most worthwhile happenings in America’s greatest urban cultural park.

To that end, I give you Museum Month—that special time each year when families can make their own memories by visiting Balboa Park museums for half-price, rather than watching the fictional memories of sitcom families on their DVR.

That’s right! Half-price museum admission during the entire month of February!

What’s the catch? (Yes, there’s always a catch, but this one won’t cost you anything.) Simply visit any Macy’s Department Store in San Diego County to fetch a free Museum Month Pass (no store purchase required), which is valid for up to four family members.

Then present the Passes and your pack at the following participating Balboa Park museums for a reduced entry fee:

  • Japanese Friendship Garden
  • Marston House & Gardens
  • Mingei International Museum
  • Museum of Photographic Arts
  • Reuben H. Fleet Science Center
  • San Diego Air & Space Museum
  • San Diego Automotive Museum
  • San Diego History Center
  • San Diego Model Railroad Museum
  • San Diego Natural History Museum
  • The San Diego Museum of Art
  • Timken Museum of Art
  • Veterans Museum & Memorial Center

This means you have an entire month to frolic inside the Fleet, drool over tasty chocolate treats at the Natural History Museum, view original world-class art objects at the San Diego Museum of Art, and soar to new heights at the Air & Space Museum for fewer bones than the latest Disney flick at the multiplex would cost you.

Not to mention, there are 30 other museums around the county you can visit for half-price as well. Take that, Stan!
