With a total of 12 unique event spaces over three floors, the Academy is ideal for catered events of all sizes from a seated dinner party of 100 to 3,000 guests throughout the entire museum.
Beginning with the impressive T-Rex skeleton that dominates the main lobby area, the Academy is full of dazzling venue options for hosting private events, corporate gatherings, fundraisers and more. Mingle with more than 38,000 live sea animals near a Technicolor live coral reef; make a toast to the stars from the Academy’s Living Roof; celebrate amidst fascinating living dioramas and exhibits depicting the natural wonders of the African continent; transport guests to a galaxy far, far away in the Planetarium; or swing by to say hello to Claude, the swamp’s ever-popular Albino Alligator.
For corporate meetings with more than cocktails and dancing on the menu, the Academy offers a Board Room that’s well suited for business lectures and presentations, plus a Forum space with Gallery and Theater, and the Planetarium with Theater.
