Balboa Park Passes

Save on admission to museums and cultural attractions

Experience the museums of Balboa Park in an easy and affordable way with the Balboa Park Explorer Pass. For one price, the Pass provides admission into as many as 16 of Balboa Park’s museums and attractions at an incredible savings over purchasing individual admission tickets.
