February is San Diego Museum Month

During the month of February, more than 30 museums and historical sites will offer half-price admission. Museum-goers must get a Museum Month pass at a local Macy’s store to be granted the discounted admission price.

This year, the participating institutions include Birch Aquarium at Scripps, Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, La Jolla Historical Society, Museum of Photographic Arts, San Diego Museum of Man and San Diego Air & Space Museum.

Museum Month was created in 1989 to promote the awareness of the county’s museums, historical sites, educational institutions and cultural offerings. Last year, more than 17,000 people used the Museum Month pass.
