Celebrating Macy’s Museum Month


Thanks to a partnership between Macy’s and the San Diego Museum Council (SDMC); more than 40 San Diego museums, historical sites, and cultural attractions are offering half-off admission in February. Back for its 27th year, Macy’s Museum Month gives visitors and locals a chance to celebrate San Diego’s rich arts and culture destinations with incredible savings.

Whether you are an art aficionado, history buff, or nature lover, the SDMC has a variety of member organizations that are bound to capture your interest. And with these special savings that are only offered once a year, it’s a great time to visit both old favorites and new attractions you have never even heard of! A complete list of participating organizations is available online.

Beginning February 1, Museum Month passes are available at all area Macy’s locations including San Diego, Temecula, and Imperial Valley—find a store near you. Each pass admits up to four people at half price. Additional fees may apply for special exhibitions or events. Each pass also features an exclusive coupon for $10 off any purchase of $30 or more at Macy’s. Promotion ends February 28.

Be sure to share your Museum Month experiences and photos with us on social Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter using #MacysMuseumMonth.
