Game Changer on Friday Night Fun

Are you looking for something extra fun to do with your family tonight?

Check out the Fleet Science Center’s Game Masters exhibit any Friday starting tonight through September 1st for late night gaming open to all ages until 10 p.m..

There’s 100+ playable games, gaming on the Giant Dome screen and a no-host bar (open at 6 p.m.) for your adult beverage needs.

We got a sneak preview of this last night, and it truly was one of our best family night’s out ever. Greg and I got to introduce our kids to the arcade games we grew up with . . .

And the kids introduced us to some of their favorite games.


This is the first large-scale exhibition to take visitors behind the scenes of how video games are made as well as spotlighting the people who actually make them. From Nintendo’s iconic worlds featuring Mario and Link, to the obsession that is Minecraft, to the immersive experiences of Blizzard Entertainment, this is a landmark collection of the most popular video games on the planet, as well as independent games with a cult-like following.

No quarters needed! Regular admission applies, and includes Game Masters and all the Fleet’s interactive exhibits. Game Masters is also available for daytime fun, but we loved having a family night out, and I would imagine it’s always less crowded!

FREE admission is also available to any San Diego kinder – 12th grade student who has received an “A” in any science or math subject in the past 12 months.

Want discounted tickets? The Fleet has great discounts for educators and military and is also open every month during resident free Tuesday.

Game Masters will be on exhibit through January 15, 2018.

Late night at the museum runs this Friday through September 1st. Last admission is 9:30 p.m.; the building closes at 10 p.m.

Those who wish to consume alcohol must have a valid ID and be 21 or older.

Game on!
