Reuben H Fleet Science Center information
One of Balboa Park’s most popular venues, this hands-on science museum features interactive displays and a toddler room. Look out for opportunities to build gigantic structures with Keva planks and visit the Gallery of Illusions and Perceptions . The biggest drawcard is the Giant Dome Theater ($7 if purchased separately), which screens several different films each day. The hemispherical, wraparound screen and 152-speaker state-of-the-art sound system create sensations ranging from pretty cool to mind-blowing.
