Get a Break on Museum Admission

James Menor

Balboa Park at Dusk.


If you're planning on spending the weekend at Balboa Park any weekend this month, you could save a little cash. Who doesn't want that?

Three museums – Mingei International Museum, the Museum of Man, the Museum of San Diego History and the Museum of Photographic Arts – will be offering weekend reduced admissions starting Thursday, October 1.

Between 10 a.m. and noon on Saturday and Sunday, you can pay half-price admission to the museums. The bargain price will be available through October for MoPA and through Memorial Day for the other museums. After January, MoPA will join into the bargain weekend admission group once again through Memorial Day.
