Planning Your Time in Downtown

Planning Your Time

Most downtown attractions are open daily, but the Museum of Contemporary Art and the New Children's Museum are closed Wednesday, and the Firehouse Museum is only open Thursday through Sunday. For guided tours of the Gaslamp Quarter Historic District, visit on Saturday. A boat trip on the harbor, or at least a hop over to Coronado on the ferry, is a must at any time of year. From December through March, when gray whales migrate between the Pacific Northwest and southern Baja, consider booking a whale-watching excursion from the Broadway Pier.
