We are proud to participate in Kids Free in October! Though all MCASD visitors under the age of 25 are always welcome to the Museum free of charge, we're excited to be part of this city-wide initiative where children ages 12 and under will be welcomed into dozens of San Diego cultural institutions for free during the month of October!

Our Education Department is gearing up for a new academic year with YOU in mind.
