During San Diego Museum Month, residents and visitors enjoy special half-price admission to a wide range of museums, historic sites, gardens, aquariums and other cultural destinations throughout San Diego County. There is something for every age and interest, including visual art and design, children and families, science and nature, history, wildlife, military, transportation, music and cultural heritage.
