Kids Visit Museums Free in October

Calling all parents! Here’s a fun, free activity you can do with the kids.

For the entire month of October, children 12 and under can get free admission to 40 museums in San Diego County. (Scroll down for a complete list of participating museums.)

To get free admission, you must have a coupon. You can print coupons from the San Diego Museum Council’s website or pick them up at any Time Warner Cable store.

Each coupon is good for two free child tickets with one paid adult ticket. Coupons can’t be combined with other offers and may not include special exhibitions at the museum.

This is the fourth year of the free admission for kids program. Last year, more than 10,000 families participated, according to the museum council.
