The Big Exchange

Membership has its benefits—especially during The Big Exchange, a membership reciprocity program taking place May 1–18, 2024.

During the San Diego Museum Council’s special The Big Exchange, members of the San Diego Natural History Museum free general admission to more than 50 participating arts and cultural destinations in San Diego. Check out who's participating this year.

Simply head to your favorite participating museum, tell the guest services representative you are there for The Big Exchange, and show your membership card from The Nat for complimentary reciprocal admission.

Complimentary reciprocal admission is for individuals included on your membership with a maximum of 4 people, and may not include specially priced films or exhibitions. Learn more about program details.
