Reuben H. Fleet Science Center

Reuben H. Fleet Science Center Review

The center's interactive exhibits are artfully educational. Older kids can get hands-on with inventive projects in the Tinkering Studio, while Kid City entertains the 5-and-under set. The IMAX Dome Theater, which screens exhilarating nature and science films, was the world's first, as is the Fleet's new "NanoSeam" (seamless) dome ceiling that doubles as a planetarium. The Nierman Challenger Learning Center—a realistic mock mission-control and futuristic space station—is a big hit.
