Birthday Parties at Fleet Science Center are perfect for your STEM loving kids!  This unique party choice is in the heart of San Diego’s Balboa Park. A birthday party at the Fleet is one that your child and their guests will never forget!  With more than 100 exhibits that encourage kids to touch and discover, entertainment is built right in! The Fleet also provides a personal party room and much more! Check out highlights from our recent party at the Fleet!

Why we loved it!

The Party is 2 hours long – which is just enough time in my opinion!

Guests can enjoy the Fleet after the Party is over!

The Party is held inside the museum and kiddos are totally supervised, no need for parents to stay!

The museum is in the middle of Balboa Park!  While guest’s parents can grab a discounted admission to the Fleet, they can also take a stroll through this beautiful San Diego Landmark child free! Seriously, when was the last time you did that? This is a gift to every parent that takes a child to your kid’s party!

I suggest if you book a party to make sure to get down early and plan to stay a little later.  You will not need to set up or clean up, but you will want some extra time!  We strolled through Balboa Park for about an hour before the party and we honestly wished we had gone earlier.  After the party, the boys continued to enjoy the museum for more than an hour.  It was so fun to watch them have a great time with a science themed birthday party!
