San Diego’s Fleet Science Center is Free for Grandparents and Grandkids September 8

On National Grandparents Day, kids can treat their favorite nana or papa to free admission to the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center in San Diego.

Of course, Grandparents can do the treating, too. The only requirement for the free admission on Sunday, September 8, is that one grandparent be accompanied by one or two grandkids. That’s right, free admission for one grandparent and up to two grandkids. That’s a savings of $23 – $35!

The free admission is sponsored by Scholarshare College Savings Plan, which seems like a perfect pairing to me. The ScholarShare mascot, Diploma Dog, will also make an appearance early in the afternoon to conduct a sing-along for the kids and explore with them what they want to be when they grow up. Each child gets a “diploma” to color in Diploma Dog and to record his or her dream of a future career. How cute is that?

After spending a day at the science center’s eight interactive exhibit galleries, be sure to take a fun photo in the career character cutouts.

The Fleet Science Center will be open 10AM to 6PM on Sunday, September 8. Grandparents and grandchildren can pick up their free exhibit gallery pass at the ticket counter upon arrival. Free parking is available in the lot adjacent to the museum and along Park Blvd.

Live Free!
