Discover the Possibilities...

It's a friendly outdoor dinner surrounded by a beautifully lit forest and the brilliance of the evening sky.  A fun corporate event studded with hot and cold food stations as your guests wander throughout the exhibit hall.  Or an intimate wedding on the lawn followed by a reception and music on the deck.  With so many opportunities for creating imaginative atmospheres, the Discovery Museum Science & Space Center can make any event truly unforgettable.

We offer beautiful and educationally rich spaces from which to choose in a complex that includes 14 wooded acres, a planetarium, shaded deck, and a fascinating exhibit hall. Create an ideal environment to fit your event, from 20 to 100 guests.  From sophisticated and dramatic to out-of-this-world, the museum is a hidden gem that will make your special event sparkle!
