"We had been having a hard time finding a venue in town which could host birthday parties for 30+ kids, a sizable number of adults, provide intellectually stimulating while also fun and engaging content for elementary school age groups, cater quality foods and beverages... until we "discovered" the Fleet birthday parties three years ago! Since then, our son did not want to have his birthday celebration anywhere else, and we celebrated his 6th, 7th and 8th birthdays at the Fleet. Each year it was very special in its own way - different science workshops, IMAX movies, scavenger hunts, foods, room decors, goody bags. The Special Events team did a fantastic job coordinating "before the party" communication and activities, and they also made sure that everything ran flawlessly during the birthday bash. Our son and his friends always had a great time, and we'll certainly be back for his "Big 9"!"

"I had my son's 4th birthday at the Fleet Science Center and he and his friends had the BEST time! The coordinator coordinated and communicated everything from the itinerary to the cake order well and advance, so all we had to do was show up. The party included some mini science experiments in a private room, and lunch and cake with some crazy toddler dancing in the party room afterward. All of our guests were allowed access to the entire museum for the rest of the day, so we all partied on. I would highly recommend the Fleet Science Center for kids parties!"


"We had a mixed group of kids and adults, celebrating my son's 10th birthday. Fun was had by all. Free time in the Science Center allowed the kids and adults to explore and just have fun experiencing the space. The private party room was an easy to spot to gather and celebrate. Our hosts and our mad scientist were helpful, friendly and quite funny. The staff definitely kept the kids engaged and on task. The Fleet is a wonderful place to hold a celebration. We attended an iMax and the theatre host did a shout out to my son for his big day. Way to make him feel special."

"[The staff] was fantastic to work with. [The staff member] made my job so easy and allowed me to be able to enjoy the holiday party. [The staff] was very responsive and made suggestions to help the party fall within my budget. In addition, there were a tremendous amount of assistants to help with the entrance, coat hanging, directions, information, etc. Thank you, Fleet Science Center and staff, for a wonderful holiday party and venue!!"

"Science is very important to my wife and me. Our first conversation involved Isaac Asimov's stories. We visited the Fleet on our first date. I proposed to her in front of the Endeavor orbiter when it was being transported through Los Angeles. The Fleet was really the only choice for our reception venue. The planning process went well from start to finish, and the night of the event the staff was perfectly professional. All of our friends enjoyed the experience."

"I would highly recommend the Fleet Science Center for small, large, business and family groups. The service was excellent, the food most reasonable and the opportunities for children to explore the center and enjoy the park added to our enjoyment. We also had a number of locations that provided backgrounds for our family photos taken by a local photographer. Thanks to all the staff who contributed to success of our 'one and only' family reunion attended by more than 50 family members."

"Being a biotech company, we are challenged to find a venue that our employees will not be bored in. This was such a fun, interactive venue! It was a great way to have all of these great minds have fun. Plus, staff here is amazing!"
