February is for Museum Lovers

Growing up, I thought February was the worst. The weather was the pits. The holiday decorations were down and real Spring was still a few months away. But now, February has become one of my favorite months - filled with lots of birthdays, and, of course, Museum Month in San Diego. During Museum Month, museums throughout San Diego County offer half-off admission, which makes it the perfect time to revisit an old favorite or to check out something new.

Just in case you were wondering, here's what my 2016 Museum Month Bucket List might look like:

Made in America at Mingei, featuring an iconic piece from every state.

Eureka! at The New Children's Museum.

A bonus trip to the San Diego Children's Discovery Museum in Escondido. (Have you been? If you have little ones, I promise it's worth the drive. Post nap time in the afternoon is the best time to go. Mornings are hopping there.)

And MCASD is always a good idea. (Here's what's on view now.)

To get the discount, just pick up a Museum Month pass at any San Diego, Temecula or Imperial Valley Macy's store.

Just think of it as a little Valentine's (or Galentine's) Day gift to yourself.
