The Fleet Science Center is an exciting place to be in 2024—even after hours! This year, we open our doors for James Hood’s Beautifica in our Heikoff Giant Dome Theater. Experience a mesmerizing musical journey set against stunning computer-generated universes synced to the beats of the legendary Pretenders drummer's music. 

We are trilled to be one of the featured venues for Candlelight Concerts, featuring a talented string quartet paying homage to iconic bands like The Beatles and Coldplay.

Exciting news for sci-fi fans: Dune: Part Two will play at our Heikoff Giant Dome Theater every weekend from February 29 to March 17. Witness the sequel to this soon-to-be classic on our larger-than-life dome screen, an experience you can’t get anywhere else in San Diego!
