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!
