These are just a few of the museums that are in the park and that I have visited and written about myself. This section will expand as I visit more.
Getting ThereYou can get to Balboa Park from the 5 Freeway or from Highway 163. You can also use public transportation on a few different routes to get to the park. Once there, there are multiple parking lots around the area as well as street parking if you are OK to walk. During busy summer months, there can be shuttles to take you from different sections to the parking lot.
You can buy tickets to each individual museum you want to visit separately or you can buy a day or year long park pass to visit all of the 17 museums and the zoo. The park pass is a much better option if you plan on spending a full day there as it will save you money, but if time is limited then you might just want to buy a ticket to whichever museums you choose to explore. You can find pass info here.
