Macy's Museum Month is back for its 29th year this February. San Diegans and tourists are invited to enjoy half-off admission at more than 40 San Diego Museum Council (SDMC) member museums the entire month.

Whether you are an art aficionado, history buff, or nature lover, the SDMC has a variety of member organizations that are bound to capture your interest.
