Since 1989, February has been celebrated as Museum Month in San Diego. Starting on the 1st, visit any Macy’s store in San Diego County and receive a pass for half-price admissions to more than 30 museums. This is a great opportunity to go visit some of those museums you have been meaning to see.

My top 5 museums to visit -

Birch Aquarium at Scripps, Museum of Photographic Arts, USS Midway, San Diego Museum of Art, and the Mingei Museum.

Feel free to leave any other favorite museums in comments as suggestions for other readers.

    My favorite museum at Balboa Park is the Model Railroad Museum. It’s one of the hidden jewels of the park! It’s located downstairs and its has amazing replicas and model railroad trains. And yes, the trains really run!
