What is there to do?

Science CAN be IS fun, especially when you experience attractions like the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center, where kids can learn through experiments, touching, feeling, and using their imagination!

The center has over 100 fun and exciting interactive exhibits which are all based around teaching children about science. Over eight galleries, the whole family can experience the wonders of science together!

Have you ever touched a tornado? Have you ever created shadows...that are colorful!? Have you ever really examined the vibrations of a guitar string as it's strummed? These are the kind of things kids can encounter at the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center!

We are all made up of the same cells and muscles, but how does the human body really work? In Celluar Journey you can explore all about what we are made up of, and how we all work together!

Development of the senses is so important in kids, which is why the Look! Touch! Listen! exhibit lets kids engage their mind as they use all of their senses in the fun attraction.

Have you got younger creative minds in the family? Then Kid City is JUST for them! Those little kids can play on toys and get creative with activities just for them. Pretty cool! 

We haven't even begun to scratch the surface with what you can experience! 

The center also has the world's FIRST IMAX Dome Theater - which give you an amazing experience as you watch some of the biggest films on the planet! It will give you the illusion of being suspended in space because of how the configuration wraps around you. Pretty exciting!

For family fun, education, experiments, and interactive fun, then the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center should be on your list for your next family day out!

Enjoy science - we KNOW you will!

The theater has designated wheelchair areas, as several of the restrooms are accessible. They have elevators too, but ask for help if you need it
