Get out and explore what San Diego has to offer with the City of San Diego Public Library’s (SDPL) new Discover & Go program. Starting today, the program offers free individual and family day passes to several of San Diego’s biggest attractions, including the San Diego Zoo, New Children’s Museum, Museum of Us and Skateworld.

"Discover & Go reduces barriers that residents come up against when visiting San Diego's arts and culture venues," said Library Director Misty Jones. "The free access this program provides will allow even more people to take advantage of the unique cultural experiences available in and around San Diego.” 

The program is open to San Diego residents ages 16 and older with a valid SDPL card. Passes can be reserved on the Discover & Go webpage, or by visiting or calling one of the 36 SDPL locations. Patrons choose from available passes by attraction and date, then print or download the passes and take them to the venue, along with a valid I.D., on the day of the visit. Participating venues include:

  • Coronado Historical Association.      
  • J.A. Cooley Museum. 
  • La Jolla Historical Society. 
  • Marston House. 
  • Museum of Photographic Arts. 
  • Museum of Us. 
  • New Children’s Museum. 
  • San Diego Archaeological Center. 
  • San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum.  
  • San Diego Model Railroad Museum. 
  • San Diego Museum of Art.  
  • San Diego Zoo. 
  • Skateworld. 

New passes are added at the beginning of each month and are available on a first come, first served basis. For more information and answers to frequently asked questions, click here
