From an intimate setting for 40 to an extravaganza for 4,000, at the California Science Center, we have events down to a science!

Last Chance! Book through December 2023!

The final countdown is on! Host an event in the Samuel Oschin Pavilion before the space shuttle Endeavour is temporarily moved off display while we complete the construction of her new permanent home, the Samuel Oschin Air and Space Center. Final private event bookings are available in this space through December 2023.
