“Museum Month is all about getting out and exploring everything San Diego has to offer,” Bob Lehman, executive director of the San Diego Museum Council, said in a statement. “Whether you’re a local or a visitor, you’ll always find something new each year — from a new exhibition to a hidden neighborhood gem, as well as fun ideas for family day trips or date-night destinations.”

Each Museum Month pass can be used for up to four half-price admissions at any participating site. (Fees may apply for special exhibits and events at some locations.) Guests can use their Museum Month pass to visit as many places as they like during February.

Museum Month 2023 is supported by the California Arts Council, First 5 San Diego, San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture, San Diego County and The Pecus Group.
