We took our grandkids to the Fleet Center. We thought this would be a winner for the 3 kids, 6, 9 and 11. It was great for about 60 to 90 minutes then boredom set in. Our opinion was this was not a value trip...More
We did not have any kids with us, but many things were interesting to us as well. It would be great for older elementary kids. We got in free because of a membership at a museum in another state that has a reciprocal agreement. Unlike...More
The Fleet Science Center is located in the heart of Balboa Park. We explored it as part of our San Diego card which also included an IMAX show. The museum is small but does have some informative exhibits. Our 8 year old was certainly entertained...More

Nice museum, though from a small sample size; we didn't have time to stay long. Many of the exhibits were geared to kids, so of less interest to us, however we did see an excellent Imax movie about the Great Barrier Reef. We had the...More
Ok. The minute you walk in the door the mold smell is brutal. If you can get past that then the science 🔬 part of the Museum was cool. Lots of hands on for everyone.
The imax theatre 🎭 sadly it was horrible. The film...More
