Armed Forces Day, May 18, 2019 through Labor Day, September 2, 2019

The San Diego Botanic Garden is proud to participate in the Blue Star Museum program, offering free admission to all Active Duty, National Guard and Reserve members of the U.S. military and their families (card carrier plus 5 immediate family members). As our way of saying ‘thank you’ to the brave men and women of the U.S. Military, the Garden will kick off our Blue Star program on Armed Forces Day, Saturday, May 18.

Military families are invited to come and enjoy our restful 37-acre botanic wonderland. Children of all ages will enjoy exploring our two children’s gardens, Seeds of Wonder and our nationally-acclaimed Hamilton Children’s Garden, featuring Toni’s Tree House, as well as a Mountain Stream, Garden Music, Garden ABC Plant exploration areas and more. Blue Star participants are also extended free admission to attend special events held at the Garden during the summer months including Thursday Family Fun Nights each Thursday from June 6 – July 18 (except for July 4); Fairy Festival on June 22; and Insect Fest on July 20 & 21.

Thanks to the generous support of a Garden member, the San Diego Botanic Garden is able to participate in the Blue Star Museum program, a partnership among the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense, and museums across the country.

Simply show one of the following active military I.D. cards at Admissions: • Army • Navy • Air Force • Marines • Coast Guard • National Guard and Reserve.
