Update: The winner of the giveaway is Elizabeth. Thank you all for entering.

Have you ever visited Mingei International Museum in Balboa Park?  Mingei is a unique museum because it not only displays art but also local crafts and from around the world. Recently Maribel took her daughter to Balboa Park for a mommy and med outing. She shares all about it.

Last month we visited Mingei for their Family Sunday –which is held on the third Sunday of the month (This weekend!) and it was so much fun! It’s the perfect way to spend a day with the family and at only $5.00 per family or $3.00 for individuals also easy on the wallet.

You are greeted at the front entrance with a “map” with photos of the exhibits to begin a treasure hunt. The treasure hunt has trivia and takes you throughout the museum and makes learning FUN! Once you have toured the museum and have found all your clues you can return to the entrance, turn in your completed hunt and receive a prize!

Family Sunday at the Mingei is truly a ton of fun! The museum also hosts a local artist demonstrating a make and take craft project. The day we visited the artist was Natasha Papousek (you can find her on ETSY). Natasha demonstrated beading and we had a great time putting our crafting skills tot the test.

The Mingei International Museum is open 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Tuesday – Sunday. For more information head here.

It’s Giveaway time! If you can’t make it to Family Sunday but would love to visit, We have a family 5 pack of admissions to the Mingei International Museum to giveaway. All you have to do is leave a comment letting us know why you would like to win. Giveaway ends on Sunday, February 26th. Winner will be chosen at random.

    I LOVE Etsy!!! I strongly believe in supporting local craftsmen and am starting to do at-home crafts with my 2 year old daughter. Gives me a chance to find the artistic side of me that I never explored enough. Thank you for the referral!
