The Big Exchange | Mingei International Museum

From May 1-18, The Big Exchange gives members of participating organizations reciprocal admission to more than 40 museums, historic sites, gardens, and more throughout San Diego County. Show your current membership card and get free entry to the organizations listed below.

Simply head to your favorite participating museum, tell your guest services representative that you are there for “The Big Exchange,” and then show your member card from any participating museum for complimentary reciprocal admission. Maximum of four people per membership.

Each membership is reciprocal per guest or membership status. For example, a single membership would enjoy similar access to one attendee at a participating museum. A family membership might enjoy entrance for up to four guests at another participating museum.

Please note: Balboa Park Explorer Pass holders are not included in this program.
