Our main building will surprise and delight your guests with more than 700 hands-on exhibitions and live demonstrations. From whimsical parties to elegant affairs, a private event in the main building will be educational, entertaining and absolutely exceptional.
The latest addition to the Saint Louis Science Center, Boeing Hall boasts 13,000 square feet of space. This state‐of‐the‐art, contemporary facility is equipped with specialized lighting and acoustical systems, providing the ultimate setting for your signature event.
JAMES S. MCDONNELL PLANETARIUM AND BOEING SPACE STATION
A Saint Louis landmark, this venue is ideal for any event, be it a wedding reception, elaborate dinner or corporate cocktail reception. Party‐goers will be amazed at their private view of more than 9,000 twinkling stars and glowing planets projected overhead on the planetarium’s 80‐foot dome ceiling and will get an exclusive glimpse of what it’s like to live, work and play aboard the Boeing Space Station.
THE LOFT, BRIDGE AND STRUCTURES GALLERY
The retro, mod vibe of the Loft sets the scene for an imaginative gathering and provides access to the bridge and Structures Gallery. The bridge – an illuminated crossing that spans Interstate 40/64 ‐ connects our two buildings and is one of the most dramatic, unique venues in St. Louis. Both spaces create the perfect setting for intimate get‐togethers, dinners and receptions.
