Reuben H Fleet Science Center

Museum in San Diego

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 draw is the Giant Dome Theater, 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.
