Out-of-This-World Parties!


Looking for a REALLY different party venue? How about an after-hours party in the Space Quest! exhibit at the Discovery Museum? What fun – just you and your family and friends with the whole Museum to yourselves!  You can invite up to 100 people, bring in your own choice of refreshments, and enjoy 2 private hours of edu-tainment in the Museum. The party plan includes up to 2 planetarium shows, so everyone – no matter how young – in your party can enjoy the star show in the only public domed planetarium in the Sacramento area.

All evenings are available: send us an email and let’s get started planning an out-of-this-world party! This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
