Seven North County museums will work together to produce the first-ever North County Arts & Culture in June event. The collaboration means that visitors to these museums in June will receive half-off admission prices, as well as several special events.
The museums are the California Center for the Arts, Escondido Museum in Escondido, California Surf Museum in Oceanside, Lux Art Institute in Encinitas, Museum of Making Music in Carlsbad, the Oceanside Museum of Art, the San Diego Botanic Garden in Encinitas and the San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum, formerly known as the Escondido Children’s Museum.
The public can secure a free passport atwww.northcountyartsandculture.org, then present it at any of the museums to get half-price admission for as many as four people. The passport is good for one visit to each museum during the month.
Grace Madamba of the Lux Art Institute in Encinitas, and one of the June event’s co-organizers, said the idea sprang from the popularity of the countywide museum month that happens each February.
