A really great museum for children and adults! Artwork, artifacts and interactive exhibits make this a perfect outing. Not cheap, but affordable and worth the price! It's very easy to find and they offer group pricing (over 10 persons) and student discounts are available too! Visit their website to keep up on the upcoming exhibits and the latest news : http://www.sdnhm.org

The Natural History Museum has some great temporary exhibits. A few years ago they housed the Dead Sea Scrolls for almost a year and it was an amazing experience. Check the website for upcoming exhibits. They are usually quite good.

This is a large beautiful museum in Balboa Park, with permanent exhibits about the history and culture of San Diego and Southern CA, as well as temporary featured exhibits. The entry is a stunning atrium with natural light and a featured staircase to encourage foot traffic.

I LOVE this museum. It's not just artifacts sitting in glass cases - it's interactive, stimulating, and even exciting exhibits that educate and inform and keep you interested. They have a giant screen theater, which is my favorite - I've seen ocean documentaries, Disney's Earth, 3D Dinosaurs, and a space movie when I was younger - and I've loved them all. You really get into the exhibit (or movie) and actually have fun. Their exhibits are often temporary, though, which is good and bad: it keeps locals coming back, but visitors get what they offer when they visit. Chances are you'll have a good variety to choose from, though!
P.S. I second Rachel's comment about the Dead Sea Scrolls - those were a HUGE success (with even bigger crowds) a few years ago, and a once-in-a-lifetime experience absolutely worth seeing. I hope they come back someday.
