The San Diego Museum Council is proud to announce that its heavily discounted and sought-after event, Museum Month, is back this February 2011. During the entire month of February, individuals can pick up a free Museum Month Pass at Macy’s stores to receive half-off admission at 39 San Diego County museums all month long. Guests with a pass may bring up to three people with them to any participating museum to receive half-off, too.
Museum Month was created in 1989 to promote awareness of the region’s museums, historical sites, educational institutions and cultural offerings. Since that time the promotion has grown to become a cultural tradition on a level witnessed by very few cities in the country. Last year more than 23,000 visitors used the Museum Month Pass to visit museums at half-price.
From San Diego individuals, families, visitors, explorers, adventurers, history buffs, art enthusiasts, animal and plant lovers, to culture-seekers and more – there is something for everyone’s interests at the participating museums and historical sites known as some of San Diego’s most important institutions.
