"Realize a San Diego where everyone is connected to the power of science." 

--Our Mission Statement


The Fleet Science Center features more than 100 interactive science exhibits, as well as major traveling exhibitions. Visitors can touch a tornado, create colored shadows, examine the vibration of guitar strings and get their hands on a variety of intriguing scientific phenomena. 


The Fleet Science Center is also home to the world's first (and San Diego’s only) IMAX Dome Theater, presenting the biggest films on the planet. Its unique configuration wraps the audience in images and provides the illusion of being suspended in space. The Eugene Heikoff and Marilyn Jacobs Heikoff Dome Theater takes audiences from outer space to under water and every place in between, and films are generally suitable for all ages. San Diego's only Giant Dome Theater also plays host to planetarium shows, including the monthly Sky Tonight show, which is led by an astronomer and followed by outdoor telescope viewing, courtesy of the San Diego Astronomy Association.


The Fleet Science Center is open 365 days a year, starting at 10 a.m. 

We are located in beautiful Balboa Park, home to many of the city's museums, as well as beautiful gardens, intriguing architecture and picturesque fountains. Since our opening in 1973, the Fleet has been the best-attended museum in Balboa Park and a top attraction in San Diego. For more information, visit our website at or call (619) 238-1233.


The Fleet Science Center offers:

  • More than 100 interactive exhibits
  • Studio X, where you can experiment, invent and create
  • Kid City, an exhibition just for kids ages five and under
  • Plus, Craveology Cafe and the North Star Science Store
