Reuben H. Fleet Science Center Ticket Giveaway

One of our favorite museums in Balboa Park is the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center, because learning about science while playing is a bonus and I find going there to be a relatively stress-free experience. Here’s a chance for you to win some tickets and visit for free.

What We Love About Reuben H. Fleet Science Center

  • Leaning while playing, mentioned above.
  • Kid City: A hands-on exhibit upstairs for kids ages 5 and under that also has an area especially for non-walkers.
  • IMAX: Check out a kid-friendly IMAX movie in the awesome IMAX dome theater.
  • The cool hands-on exhibits downstairs. Creating cloud puffs, sound waves, and other exhibits that interesting to both kids and adults.
  • Don’t forget to duck into the gift shop. Lots of inexpensive fun finds. I mentioned some of them on NBC San Diego as potential gift ideas.
  • Parking is easy if you get there when it opens.
