A new pass provides year-round access to the museums and attractions in Balboa Park.
There's an artsy way to walk off that turkey dinner: Head to Balboa Park and stroll through a bunch of museums. This would be costly, except for the new Balboa Park Explorer Pass.
It gives pass holders unlimited admission all year long to 17 of the park’s museums and attractions.
The pass costs $129 for an individual and $199 for families with up to four kids. There is a senior/student price of $99. Families can hop from the Timken to the Mingei to the Model Railroad Museum without paying each admission price.
The pass went on sale this month and can be purchased at the Balboa Park Visitor Center and at a handful of museums.
It is also available online at balboapark.org/explorer; or you can call (619) 239-0512.
