The Big Exchange 2015

The BIG Exchange | May 1-15, 2015

The Big ExchangeThe BIG Exchange is an annual program of the San Diego Museum Council designed to get more people into area cultural institutions. The Living Coast is a proud member of the Museum Council and is supporting the BIG Exchange from May 1-15, 2015. We’re one of 31 institutions that are offering free attendance to members of participating organizations.

That means our Members can simply show their Living Coast Member Card at any of the organizations listed below for free admission between May 1-15. Tell their guest services representative that you are a Living Coast member “here for the Big Exchange.” If you’re a member — or think now’s a good time to become one — you can join online or at our front desk.

While you’re here, why not check out SuperWild: Discovering Animal Super Powers through September 7, 2015. Thanks for supporting the Living Coast and, by extension, these BIG Exchange organizations!
