Boonshoft Museum

The Boonshoft Museum of Discovery

Perfect for the kid in all of us, The Boonshoft offers several unique spaces for events alongside their exhibits.  Exchange vows in the planetarium under the stars or in the outdoor amphitheater nested in the trees. Wine and dine in the main exhibit hall surrounded by the museum’s exhibits or have cocktail hour in the center lobby featuring two-stories of beautiful windows overlooking the museum’s grounds. If high tech options make your heart race, the Science on a Sphere room has a six-foot diameter sphere with a customizable projection system. You can showcase an amazing array of graphics and images during your event on the sphere. It makes for a unique, intimate reception or for a one-of-a-kind dance floor with a night club feel.

With advanced notice, some of the museum’s most popular attraction…the animals…can make an appearance among your guests. Nothing delights guests more than being able to see a sloth or river otter up close. Want something a little more exciting when it comes to entertainment? Add an explosive science program to your evening’s entertainment that will surely get your guests attention!
