Now its 33rd year, San Diego Museum Month is returning from Feb. 1 to Feb. 28, 2022, with half-off admission and in-person museum experiences at 45+ local museums and cultural attractions. The Museum Month pass is available for free at all Macy’s store locations in San Diego County. Visitors can use each Museum Month pass all month long for up to four half-priced admissions at any of the participating museums.

The Whaley House in Old Town San Diego reopened in October 2021 under the operation of Old Town Trolley Tours. Besides being home to the prominent Whaley Family, it also housed San Diego’s first commercial theater, the county courthouse and a general store. The Whaley House is widely regarded as one of the most iconic landmarks in San Diego due to its rich Greek Revival architecture style, authentic décor, mysterious past, and haunted pedigree.

From January through June 2022, the newest exhibit from the San Diego Model Railroad Museum, Out of the Vault: Items from Our Collection, will showcase unique and rare items from its collection, including decades-old locomotives made of pewter and brass. Some of the pieces in this exhibit have never been on public display, so museum visitors will be among the first to see them.

Reopening April 2022, the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego will be expanding its La Jolla campus, allowing for the dedicated display of the permanent collection alongside the presentation of temporary exhibitions. The expansion includes clarifying the entry sequence to the building and expanding gallery space while integrating the complex existing conditions into a harmonious whole. A large, flexible multipurpose gallery on the lower level will provide capacity for public programs, artist talks, performance art, music and other immersive educational activities.
