Here's the REAL scoop on living in Carlsbad ~ beaches, things to do, places to eat, community events, and of course neighborhoods, homes and the Carlsbad real estate market in general, including surrounding communities like Encinitas, Cardiff, San Marcos, Oceanside, Solana Beach and Del Mar.

February is San Diego Museum Month for 2020

February is San Diego Museum Month for 2020

 

February is San Diego Museum Month and offers a terrific museum benefit you might want to take advantage of. And you have 29 days to do so. Yes, that's right - February 29th is Leap Day!

 

Museum of Making Music in CarlsbadDuring San Diego Museum Month you can obtain discounts at over 40 museums, historic sites, and venues throughout San Diego for the entire month.

 

All you have to do is pick up your discount pass at one of the 75 San Diego Libraries (county libraries, public libraries, and community libraries), or stay at a Hilton (40+ locations in San Diego County), and you will get 50% off the cost of regular admission for up to 4 people.

 

There may be some other special offers, too.

 

Be aware that certain special programs and exhibits may have other admission fees, and some exhibits may not qualify for the discount. You might want to check with the venue first to see what, if any, limitations there are.

 

Carlsbad residents can grab their discount passes at one of the 3 City of Carlsbad library locations:

 

Dove Library (La Costa area) at 1775 Dove Lane off El Camino Real

Library Learning Center at 3368 Eureka Place

Georgina Cole Library near the Village at 1250 Carlsbad Village Drive

 

You have until February 29 to use them; discount passes may be used more than once (but the number of visits to a particular museum may be restricted). There is no cost for the discount passes.

 

Participating museums and historic sites are all members of the San Diego Museum Council. What a terrific opportunity in February 2020 to enjoy your favorites, and explore museums you haven’t visited.

 

In Carlsbad you can enjoy the Museum of Making Music (definitely worth a visit - SEE PHOTO ABOVE) and the Miniature Engineering Craftsmanship Museum.

 

Nearby visit the California Surf Museum in Oceanside and the San Diego Botanic Garden in Encinitas.

Good morning, Jeff Dowler, CRS I always loved walking through museums....it's been many many years since I've done that....my last was the Boston Museum of Fine Arts...

Good morning Jeff. California may not be a bad place to be in February for most of us, especially if you throw in the ability to view the museums at a discount. Enjoy your day!

I rarely visit museums, but when I do, I really enjoy them.  Perhaps I should start visiting them more often.

Hi Jeff Dowler, CRS, when I lived in NYC, Saturdays were my museum days. They were such wonderful days. When I travel, visiting museums is always on my list.

Jeff a museum is a great place to spend a day at, and a huge discount like that makes the experience even better.

What a great localism post, Jeff. I know our museums have "specials" from time to time but am not aware that we have a month dedicated to it. I'll need to research that.

Jeff,

I like the museum of making music, that is one that would draw me in.  How fun to have February as Museum Month. A

This is very good information to share with area residents and visitors.

Hi Wayne Martin 

Well we get a pretty good chill in the air in February at night  but during the day you can expect 50s and perhaps 60s. And spending time in a museum or 2 is a good way to go IMO.

Have a great weekend!

It's a great benefit, isn't it Nina Hollander ?
