The Heikoff Giant Dome Theater is temporarily closed through the end of October 2023 as we enhance our accommodations for an even more extraordinary experience at the Fleet Science Center.
Don't Try This at Home!
As part of our 50th Anniversary celebrations, Don't Try This at Home is back at the Fleet Science Center for a limited time with a series of live shows that explore science that's too loud to do at home!
Investigate and visualize sound through your eyes and ears in this high-energy, louder-than-life show. Our Fleet education professionals will guide you through the components of sound and how they all combine to create the beautiful (and not-so-beautiful) sounds that we hear every day.
All Don't Try This at Home live science shows are included with museum admission and are performed at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. from September 25–30. Shows last approximately 20 thrilling minutes in the Great Hall. Don't Try This at Home ... but DO hurry on in and check it out!
