Visitors of the Museum can now enjoy our new 3D/4D Zable Theater, the first of its kind in Balboa Park!
The 3D/4D Zable Theater uses advanced 3D technologies but takes it to the next level of experience; employing interactive seats and unique special effects built into the theater itself. By creating a set of “4D” effects synchronized to the film production, the 3D/4D Zable Theater adds another layer of immersive and experiential fun for audiences of all ages. 4D theaters are a multi-sensory experience and are changing the way people enjoy movies.
The 3D/4D Zable Theater seats 36 guests per show, and they are played continuously each day. The Zable Theater is a special exhibition and included with regular admission. Funding for the Zable Theater was provided by the Walter J. Zable and Betty C. Zable Foundation, Cubic Corporation and the San Diego Air & Space Technology Center.

The Secrets of Gravity
Why do things fall to the ground without magic?
The young magician’s apprentice LIMBRADUR is far more interested in the universe and its
secrets than boring magic spells. He is fascinated by the stars, the universe and the laws of nature. So, one night he sneaks into the Albert Einstein Museum, where he meets ALBYX3, a small, clever but rather quirky robot who knows all about Albert Einstein and his theories. ALBY takes LIMBRADUR on a magical journey of discovery through time and space, during which they not only uncover the secrets of gravity but also learn much about friendship and imagination. For LIMBRADUR and ALBY both have secrets of their own.
Legend of Apollo
Legend of Apollo was produced in partnership with former NASA and Apollo astronaut, David R Scott, and tells the inside story of the lunar landings with particular reference to the Apollo 15 mission.
Experiments with bending of space and development of next generation technologies laid the foundation of a new era-the era of space colonisation.
After years of research scientists around the world had begun construction of the first spacecraft to travel to other worlds.
The ship was given the name – “Breakthrough”.
Soon, millions of colonists left Earth, disappearing into the vastness of space, settling on new worlds.
