Rental events at MOSAC help bring unique experiences to our community and support our mission.  We reserve the right to ensure that events align with our core objectives and purpose.  Our facility is ideally suited for small to medium corporate-style events, and science-themed children’s birthday parties.  Due to capacity limitations and adherence to our mission, our facility is not suited for events such as weddings, proms, baby showers and the like.

We typically do not rent space during the day as we are open to the public every day except Thanksgiving and Christmas.  We have a small Board Room that has limited daytime space to rent (maximum 16 people).

We do not provide catering but will work closely with your caterer.  If your event includes alcohol, a liquor license must be provided to us and liquor liability must be included in your insurance.


The parking lot holds 144 cars.  Approximately 10 parking spaces are for electric vehicles and/or disabled placards.

Parking is $6 per car. This can be paid by your guests at the kiosk or prepaid with your event rental.

Cleaning fees will be added to all private rentals.

Table/chair/linen rental are not included in the space rental. These costs will be included within your quote.

Events can begin no earlier than 60-90 minutes after we close to the public.  Events must end by 10:00 pm.

Multiple packages are available depending on the space requested and if a dome show is included.  Should we decide your event aligns with our mission, we will set up a walk through and can provide a quote.
