The San Diego Museum Council announced the return of  San Diego Museum Month this month.

The program, which promotes San Diego as a vibrant cultural destination, will be the largest ever – with more than 60 participating museums.

It is now in its 34th year.

Balboa Park is home to 18 museums and is a popular hotspot for travelers to the region.

The park drew 1.8 million visitors in 2019.

“Visitors to Balboa Park are cultural travelers,” SDTA CEO Julie Coker.

More than 60% of visitors also explore other cultural attractions, and more than 80% visit at least two venues.

Museum Month will encourage visitors to see and do even more.”

Museum Month 2023 is supported by First 5 San Diego, following a successful collaboration on Kids Free San Diego.

Additional funding is provided by the California Arts Council, San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture, County of San Diego and The Pecus Group.

During San Diego Museum Month, visitors enjoy  half-off admission at museums, historic sites, and gardens.

It includes visual art and design, children’s venues, science and nature, history, wildlife, and cultural heritage.

The Museum Month pass is available for free at local libraries (with additional pick-up locations to be announced).

Each Museum Month pass can be used for up to four half-priced admissions at any participating museums.
