Home to an aquarium, planetarium, natural history museum (and yes, even a rainforest), the Academy offers a magnificent myriad of possibilities for weddings both large and small. Dive into the visual depths of a coral reef display; search for shooting stars from the deck of the Academy’s living roof; explore the African continent amidst traditional dioramas and living exhibits; or marvel at the atmospheric swamp exhibit’s famous albino alligator. With a total of twelve different event spaces, there’s something for every type and size of wedding celebration.

Winner of a Double LEED Platinum Award, the California Academy of Sciences is committed to energy efficiency and preserving the natural world. For example, 68% of the building’s insulation comes from recycled blue jeans.

Global Gourmet Catering is proud to be a preferred green wedding catering services provider for the California Academy of Sciences.

What We Love About This Venue
