Complete the Circuit!

This multi-museum event showcases innovation in San Diego. To maximize your experience, we highly recommend that you “complete the circuit”. Over 200 local and regional makers display their creations at Balboa Park – mostly inside participating museums. Each circuit will hold a different array of makers and activities – so be sure to explore them all!

Purchasing a weekend pass will allow you to take your time and experience all of the museums participating in this event.

Talk with makers, get hands-on, and visit the exhibitions on display. It’ll be a packed weekend!
