Reuben H. Fleet Science Center Ticket Giveaway

This site generates income via partnerships with carefully-curated travel and lifestyle brands and/or purchases made through links to them. 

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.

ScholarShare, California’s 529 college savings plan, is a proud sponsor of the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center. ScholarShare is California’s 529 College Savings Program. The recently revamped program features a minimum initial contribution of only $25 per portfolio to open an account and fees that have been reduced by approximately 30 percent, making ScholarShare one of the lowest priced 529 plans in the country.

    Kid City has always been my daughter’s favorite place there but now she also loves all of the hands on exhibits downstairs too. Every visit there is a great learning experience for her!

    Ever since the addition and upgrade of Kid City we love it even more at the Rueben H Fleet Science Center – something for all ages and since my are 6, 5 and 3 that helps! Fun and learning work hand in hand here so we have had memberships in the past and have been slow to get it renewed.

    The Reuben H. Fleet Science center is one of my fondest memories as a child. I loved all the hands on exhibits, and the movie was so exciting. I would love to be able to take my two boys of 5 and 2 to experience this wonderful place and make memories of their own.
