Learn / For Families

We invite and encourage families to enjoy the Museum together, to talk, laugh and move around freely. Children must be accompanied by an adult and running or other physical activity which might harm kids or artwork is not permitted.

Download and print the Balboa Park Family Guide at balboapark.org. You can also visit our exhibition pages to find and download Family Discovery Guides or activities – these will help you learn about the Museum’s exhibitions and collections as a family (or on your own) in a fun and creative way.

Kids love to play, climb, and pose for photos with Nikigator! #museumselfie

Family Sunday

Join us on the third Sunday of each month for a Museum event designed specifically for families. While enjoying a discounted $5 admission for the entire family, explore the Museum’s colorful exhibitions, art projects, a treasure hunt, prizes and most of all, fun! Family Sunday is made possible through a generous grant from the ResMed Foundation.
