Opened in 1974 the Fleet was the first in the nation to combine interactive exhibits with IMAX and a Planetarium. Upgraded frequently since then, and still a leader in the field. Named for the founder of the Airmail Service in the U.S. The best interactive science museum I have encountered anywhere. Exhibits that are involving include blockbusters (a huge Lego type building area), cell journey (exploring cells of the human body), illusions & perceptions (tricks on the senses), look-touch-listen (using the human senses), San Diego water, and Watts Up (exploring energy). A super IMAX theatre showing movies such as Secret Oceans, Impossible Science, Journey to Space, and Humpback Whales. There is a separate charge for each IMAX showing. Planetarium shows include ''The Night Sky Tonight', a review of the sky over San Diego, conducted by the resident astronomer at Fleet Center, and followed up by free telescope viewing of the night sky provided by the center. The Galileo cafe is inside the center, and there is a gift shop in the center. Open 10-5 seven days a week. Admission is $20 per adult. Enjoy!
