Over a dozen museums are treating families to free admission for children 12 and under during the 3rd annual Balboa Park Halloween Family Day. In addition to free children’s admission with a paid adult, participating museums and cultural attractions will present a spooky array of hands-on activities, crafts, special tours, storytelling, and other free goodies from 11am to 3pm. Adults also receive discounted admission when they pick up a Stay-for-the-Day Pass, a one-day excursion pass allowing one adult admission to five park museums for a low price of $35.

Among the highlights of this year’s park-wide Halloween Family Day is a doggie costume contest at the Spanish Village Art Center, a Great Pumpkin parachute drop at the San Diego Air & Space Museum, a creepy nocturnal Critter Cavern at the Natural History Museum, a dance performance by Ballet Folklorico Xochitl at the Mingei Museum, and activities that explore local cemeteries and gravestones at the San Diego History Center. Please see below for a complete listing of all the activities scheduled for the October 29 Family Day. Coupons are not required.
