Membership has its benefits—especially during The Big Exchange, a membership reciprocity program taking place May 1-18, 2019. The Big Exchange offers members of participating museums free general admission to more than 30 arts and cultural destinations in San Diego. Simply head to your favorite participating museum, tell your guest services representative that you are there for “The Big Exchange,” then show your member card from any participating museum for complimentary reciprocal admission.
The number of people that receive reciprocal admission depends on your membership level (e.g. a single membership would enjoy a similar access for one attendee at a participating museum; a family membership might enjoy entrance for up to four guests at another participating museum). Maximum of four people per membership.
Show your current membership card and get free entry to the organizations listed below.
*Denotes museums that do not charge admission.
† Denotes a museum whose primary exhibit will close before the end of The Big Exchange.
Please check participating museum websites for exhibitions, hours and closures.
