San Diego Sights

Fodor's 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 with interactive play stations like the Ball Wall and Fire Truck. The IMAX Dome Theater, which screens exhilarating nature and science films, was the world's first, as is the Fleet's "NanoSeam" (seamless) dome ceiling that doubles as a planetarium.
