Have your child explore his or her inner pirate, marine biologist, or historian by taking him or her to Kids Free in October, or Kidvasion, an annual event that offers kids free admission to almost forty museums in San Diego from Oct. 1 through Oct. 31. Hosted by the San Diego Museum Council and presented by Time Warner Cable, the event has become an annual favorite for many. Almost forty museums are participating in this year’s Kidvasion. Participating museums include the USS Midway Museum, Birch Aquarium at Scripps, the San Diego Museum of Art, the San Diego Botanic Garden, the San Diego Air & Space Museum, and the Museum of Making Music. The event seeks to pique children’s interest in learning and stresses the important role museums have on a child’s education. Children ages 12 and under can participate with a paid adult’s admission price. Participants must download the Kids Free coupon at www.sandiegomuseumcouncil.org before visiting.
