We recently visited the opening of the return of Ripley's Believe It or Not! at the San Diego Air & Space Museum which opened to the public, February 1st, the first day of San Diego Museum Month! Packed with interesting and unique artifacts, the Ripley's exhibit is a definite must-see. We snapped some shots of what you can see inside! Our personal favorite was the two-headed cow! After checking out the exhibit, we walked around to see the rest of the museum. There's drones and all kinds of aircraft on display. If you find yourself with extra time, there's plenty of museums in Balboa Park that's part of Museum Month! 

With that, what else is there to see during San Diego Museum Month? Have you seen our Gaslamp Museum at the William Heath Davis Museum and San Diego Chinese Historical Museum experience? They're both participating in San Diego Museum Month!

We're also attending the Culture & Cocktails Event at the San Diego Museum of Art! It's going to be our very first time attending. Sip on a drink while you mingle and admire works of art at the same time!
