We’re Open Today

The Science of Private Events

The Fleet Science Center’s Balboa Park Museum will remain temporarily closed. We continue to serve the San Diego community through our county-wide initiatives, educational programming and virtual experiences.

We are grateful for the support and patience from our community and we look forward to welcoming visitors and members back when we can safely reopen our doors.


Three spacious meeting rooms and a 274-seat Giant Dome Theater make our facility a magical setting for group events of all sizes. Learn more about hosting a private event for corporate meetings, receptions, galas, school outings, weddings, dances, sleepovers, film screenings/festivals and many other occasions.

With a multitude of ways to utilize our 30,000-square foot multi-level facility, every event at the Fleet can be uniquely customized to suit your needs. Our galleries provide the perfect ambiance for an elaborate sit-down dinner, cocktail reception, corporate event or awards banquet. The Fleet is also ideal for outdoor receptions with a spectacular view of Balboa Park's iconic Bea Evenson Fountain. Our multi-level facility offers plenty of space for entertainment, dance floors and unique event layouts. The Fleet also offers meeting space for lectures, board meetings, group presentations and luncheons. Please contact us for information and pricing.
