Fleet Science Center
Head to nearby San Diego for the Fleet Science Center, a hub that connects visitors of all ages to the power of science. Investigate over 100 interactive exhibits designed to immerse you in the experience. From the IMAX film adventures to the science workshops and camps for kids, there’s truly something for everyone. Adults can attend the monthly Fleet Night of Science events just for those 21+, and free weekly science events take place around the city as guest lectures lead 52 Weeks of Science each year.
Fleet Science Center is open daily, currently featuring eight interactive exhibits, a number of pop-up and traveling exhibits, and the popular Kid City just for guests under five years old. Invent your own contraption in the Tinkering studio, check out the Giant Dome Theater and learn about the latest technology and research.
Adventurers unite at the permanent exhibit galleries including Block Busters, a place where you can build creations of any size. Cellular Journey lets you dive into the world of stem cells, while Nano is all about meeting a world you can’t see. Visit San Diego’s Water for an immersion lesson like no other, or So Watt! for a new angle on energy.
Senior Mondays gives seasoned geeks a discount, and every first Wednesday there’s a tour of the solar system. Book your tickets early, because this show sells out! You can purchase tickets for entry, special events and more on the official site.
