The San Diego Museum Council’s (SDMC) Kids Free in October program is back again this month. Presented by ScholarShare College Savings Plan and organized by the SDMC, Kids Free allows children to get in free to over 40 museums with the purchase of an adult ticket. Participating museums range from the San Diego Botanic Garden to The New Children’s Museum to the U.S.S. Midway and much more. Last year over 15,000 kids participated in the program and expectations are even higher for this year’s attendance. Executive Director of SDMC Theresa Kosen said, “We anticipate our fifth year to be our biggest yet. We’re thrilled to invite visitors from San Diego and beyond to see what’s new at our extraordinary line-up of museums. Vibrant, interactive, fun experiences are more accessible than ever with free admissions for kids.” For more information including a full list of participating museums or to download a free voucher for admission visit
