We’re Open Today
10:00am to 6:00pm


Have you ever wanted to have your very own “Night at the Museum” adventure?

The Reuben H. Fleet Science Centers (the Fleet) wildly popular nocturnal event makes this possible! The Fleet is one of San Diego’s favorite museums, and as the doors close and the lights dim you will have the whole place to yourself!

During the night you will have total access to our eight interactive exhibit galleries, as well as our fabulous and ever-changing traveling exhibitions. Be sure to check out our newest exhibition, ILLUSION: Nothing Is As It Seems, making its North American premiere at the Fleet. Additionally, you will be able to totally immerse yourself in breathtaking imagery and stunning surround sound in our Giant Dome Theater—the only one in San Diego!

Stay tuned for registration to open for the February Science Sleepover!
