Check Balboa Park’s website for up-to-date information.

It’s free to enter the park and walk around. Museums and attractions have separate costs, but parking is free in various lots throughout the park. For specific museum admission prices, visit Balboa Park's website, where you’ll find website links and phone numbers for the park’s museums. If you are planning to visit several of the museums during your time in San Diego, consider purchasing the Passport to Balboa Park for $49/adults and $27/kids, available at any participating museum or the Visitors Center. It includes admission to 14 of the museums, as well as the Japanese Friendship Garden, but does not include admission to the San Diego Zoo. Passports are valid for one week of use. Also inquire about discounts for AAA members and military, if applicable.

Budget-conscious visitors can take advantage of one of the free guided walking tours, for a closer look at what the park has to offer.

A free tram shuttles visitors around the expansive area seven days a week from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm (with expanded hours in the spring and summer).

Don’t try to see everything in one day; reserve at least one full day to tour the park, and set aside time to see the attractions that interest you most.

Park your car in one of the free parking lots, then take advantage of the free transportation to get you from place to place within the park.

Pack a picnic lunch, enjoy the beautiful San Diego weather in one of the numerous gardens, and let the kids burn off some energy at a playground.

Don’t miss any special events or performances! Check the schedule on the Balboa Park website.

You can download high-resolution maps of Balboa Park from its website, including a series of trail maps which clearly show routes, distances, and degrees of difficulty.

For driving directions, visit the website, call 619-239-0512, or use a trip routing service such as Google Maps (destination address: 1549 El Prado, San Diego, CA 92101).
