Archaeological Center membership gets admission to other museums

For a couple of weeks in May, members of the San Diego Archeological Center can use their membership to visit museums, historic sites and all sorts of fun places around the county for free.

The BIG Exchange Reciprocal Membership Program runs from May 1 – 18. The BIG Exchange gives members of the San Diego Archaeological Center reciprocal admission at more than 30 museums, historic sites, gardens, and more throughout San Diego County. Show your current membership card and get free entry to the organizations listed on the  SDAC website:

Simply head to your favorite participating museum, tell your guest services representative that you are there for “The Big Exchange,” 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 a similar access for one attendee at a participating museum. A family membership might enjoy entrance for up to four guests at another participating museum.
