You appreciate the tranquility of a blossoming garden. Your husband is obsessed with naval aviation, and the kids? Well, if only there was a way to even temporarily quell the questions that confirm that you are not, in fact, smarter than a fifth grader.
However, you are a lady in the know, and here’s a tip to add to your mommy arsenal: Museum Month will cover all of your bases and you have the 28 days of February to take advantage of it. In one family-fun trip, you can head to Balboa Park and get reacquainted with all the enrichment it has to offer. You best believe that the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center will have the kids occupied in no time with tornado modeling, microscope peering and guesswork on the size of the average meteorite (which is much smaller than you would think). Your hubby will have a blast (pun intended) oogling the Atlas Rocket Exhibit next door at the Air & Space Museum. You will have a chance to steal a quick reprieve at the serenely beautiful Japanese Friendship Garden.
There’s more: 42 participating museums, from the Birch Aquarium at Scripps to the Tijuana Estuary will be honoring Museum Month Passes. Museum Month Passes can be picked up at any of the 14 Macy’s locations in the San Diego area, beginning February 1st. The passes are free while supplies last and can allow up to four visitors to gain month-long admission to all 42 museums for half the price.
And, with last week’s teaser launch of San Diego’s Museum Month, you won’t be the only one on your toes. The entire city has learned to anticipate this annual event. Created by the San Diego Museum Council in 1989, Museum Month celebrates its 24th year bringing art, culture, science and new exhibitions to the community. Rediscover, reconnect and explore. Soak up the enrichment and be sure to make it a friends and family affair!
WHEN: The duration of the month of February, 2013.
