Museum of Man Helps Students, Families Explore Together

Trustees of the San Diego Museum of Man recently donated 144 Explorer Memberships to the district’s Balboa Park Program. Fifth grade students from throughout the district will have the opportunity to receive the family membership, which provides free admission to the Museum of Man for two adults and their children for one year. It also includes two free admissions to Tower After Hours and a subscription to Discovery, the museum’s newsletter.

“I’m deeply touched by their gift, but honestly not surprised,” said Tina Chin, Balboa Park Program administrator. "Every year, we see this type of commitment and generosity from the various institutions in Balboa Park. These 'park people' give because they love the park and truly want people to understand that Balboa Park belongs to everyone.”
