We had our wedding at ScienceWorks and it was the PERFECT VENUE! Our guests (kids AND adults!) had a blast playing with the exhibits and the outdoor area -- with views of Grizzly Peak -- was beautiful for our ceremony and reception. Regina and Kevin were super helpful to make our wedding everything we had imagined! Highly recommend not just as a science museum but as an awesome event space!
I just had the most amazing time at ScienceWorks for my son’s school field trip. The staff was amazing and incredibly patient and encouraging with the kids. The whole experience was centered around them, it was so nice to just let all the kids explore and think freely.
