San Diego’s 25th Annual Museum Month has officially begun! For the entire month of February museum lovers can get a free museum pass that grants them 50% off at 44 local museums. That means you have 22 whole days left to enjoy the plethora of participating San Diego museums. The overzealous can even attempt to tackle two museums a day to see them all. If you’re flying into San Diego for your vacation, click here for information about San Diego Airport hotels that are minutes from all the museum action!

The San Diego Museum Council started this event 25 years ago in 1989 as a way to draw tourists and locals to local museums. All you have to do to participate is go to 1 of 14 Macy’s stores in the San Diego Area, Temecula or Imperial Valley to pick up your free Museum Pass. One pass is good for 50% off museum admission for up to four people throughout the entire month.
