San Diego Museum Month Offers Half-Price Admission in February

February may be the shortest month of the year, but you can still pack plenty into a few weeks.

February may be the shortest month of the year, but you can still pack plenty into a few weeks. It’s San Diego Museum Month, and over forty museums are offering half-price admission for the entire month. 

Thank the team of the San Diego Museum Council for this windfall of fun. The Council, which represents some of the city’s best attractions, has partnered with the California Arts Council, San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture, and Hilton to offer this special pass. All you have to do is visit one of the public libraries listed below to pick yours up beginning February 1. 

If you’re not from San Diego, you’ll receive a pass by booking a stay at one of Hilton’s 29 participating locations in San Diego County.

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.
