For the past 23 years Macy's has been sponsoring Museum Month in San Diego during the month of February. It starts February 1 and ends on the last day of the month, in 2012 would be February 29.

But what exactly does Museum Month mean?

It is very simple, there are 14 different Macy's stores in San Diego County so you visit your nearest one and pick up a FREE pass {while supplies last} and then get into one of the 40 participating San Diego Museums for half price. Sounds like a good deal right?

  1. I'm all about free museums! Great tip.

  2. Elle if you are a Bank of America cardholder, check on their Museums website http://museums.bankofamerica.com/ to find a FREE Museum near you. Theres 150 museums that participate and you can get in FREE once a month. ;) It's a great way to visit new Museums and then have them as reference for outings. This is how we first visited the Birch Aquarium a couple of years ago.
