February is Museum Month in San Diego

Given its idyllic weather, the bevy of beautiful San Diego beaches and the boatload of other fun things to see and do, pretty much any time is a great time to vacation in San Diego. But choosing to do so in the month of February is especially FAB since February is Museum Month in San Diego!

You’re probably well aware that San Diego museums are some of THE BEST in California – Balboa Park is sometimes referred to as “the Smithsonian of the West” – and 2012 marks the 23rd year for this popular event. And, since it’s leap year, you’ll have an extra day to enjoy your Museum Month pass!

Organized by the San Diego Museum Council and sponsored by Macy’s department stores, Museum Month passes — free to obtain while supplies last — may be picked up beginning February 1 at any of the store’s 14 San Diego County locations, including Temecula and the Imperial Valley.

Each pass allows half-price admission for up to four visitors to any of the participating museums. Check out the list of San Diego museums you can visit during the 2012 San Diego Museum Month below this video:
