About Explorer


Debuting in the Spring of 2014, the Balboa Park Explorer program is an unprecedented collaboration among Park organizations to meet the demand for annual pass access to the 17 spectacular museums in San Diego’s beloved Balboa Park.

With the Balboa Park Explorer program, you have the opportunity to explore the rich cultural and artistic offerings of Balboa Park in an easy and affordable way. Rather than pay different admission rates at each museum, you can choose from our convenient Annual, One-Day or Multi-Day Explorer card options, saving you time and money.

Explorer options allow you to explore as few as 5 museums in a day to as many as 17 museums for a year. Choose what you want to explore, when you want to explore it!
