October in San Diego is "Kids Free Museum Entrance" month, so we checked out the Maritime Museum downtown in the harbor yesterday. Submarines (with torpedos!), pirate ships, and air craft carrier models galore....my little guy was in heaven!

Kids Free in October, presented by ScholarShare, California's 529 College Savings Plan, will offer San Diegans and tourists the opportunity to visit more museum destinations than ever before. This annual program created by the San Diego Museum Council, provides free admission for kids 12 and under at 40 arts, cultural, and science museums in San Diego County. Remember, you need one coupon per museum visit, so download additional copies. One coupon is good for up to two free child admissions with one full-price paid adult admission*. Some restrictions apply. See details below.
