Macy's Museum Month

Mark your calendars-Macy's Museum Month is back for its 29th year this February. San Diego residents and visitors are invited to enjoy half-price admission at over 40 museums during the entire month of February. Museum Month passes will be available at any Macy's store in San Diego, Temecula, or Imperial Valley beginning February 1, 2018. The pass is free and reusable-one pass is good for up to four half-price admissions at each participating museum all month long.

With amazing year-round weather in San Diego County, we can afford to skip a day at the beach or swimming pool now and again to soak in some arts and culture instead!
