Macy's & San Diego Museum Council Team Up for Museum Month

As anyone with a family can atest, the museums of San Diego can often feel out of reach. Basic entry can be pricey, add the extra charge for special exhibits, and then the negotiating with the kids that it will be fun! when they feel like a 10 minute walk through is sufficient, and well, good luck getting museums in your life. Of course, you can brave the hoards on free Tuesdays at Balboa Park, but with museums closing before most people's workdays end, you're basically enjoying the arts with every stroller toting stay-at-home mom. Enter Museum Month, an attempt to make these institutions more accessible. The pass is free at any Macy's register just for the asking (I picked one up yesterday) and each pass is good for up to four admissions at half price. Below is the official (less-cynical) description of Museum Month. Bonus: Every museum month pass has a coupon for Macy's and a discount code to get an annual subscription of San Diego Magazine for only $8.

EVENT DATE: February 1-29, 2016

LOCATION: Participating museums

COST: 50% off admission with pass

Arts, entertainment and culture collide for Macy’s Museum Month in San Diego. This February the San Diego Museum Council and Macy’s have teamed up again for Museum Month, giving patrons a chance to discover what’s new at more than 40 area museums with savings only seen once a year.

Participants can pick up a Museum Month Pass at any area Macy’s store to enjoy half-off admission to all of the participating museums through the entire month of February. Plus, with 2016 being a leap year, you get an extra day to enjoy museum going.

Passes will be available beginning February 1 at all San Diego, Temecula and Imperial Valley Macy’s. Click here to find the store nearest you.

Guests with a pass can bring up to three people to participating museums to receive half-off admission for the entire party. Additional fees may apply for special exhibitions. Each pass also features an exclusive $10 coupon off any $30 or more at Macy’s.

Remember to keep your pass all month long and LEAP to a few new museums!
