Mingei International Museum, located within San Diego’s Balboa Park, conducts a fun Family Sunday from Noon-4pm once a month. Mingei’s Family Sunday offers discount admission, of only $5 per family, or $3 for individuals. Attendees can explore the museum’s colorful exhibitions of folk art, craft and design, win a prize for completing a treasure hunt as well as participate in other activities such as storytelling and hands-on projects.

This month participants are invited to construct and decorate their own bazooka and participate in a Bombshell Boom Boom musical event with guest artist and musician Sean Conway. Please Note: This month’s Family Sunday is taking place on April 14th, 2013, one week prior to the normal Sunday, as not to coincide with the Earth Fair taking place the following week.
