Are you on the hunt for a Phoenix venue to host a fundraising event, gala, class reunion, private exhibition showing or some other gathering? Arizona Science Center makes the ideal backdrop for a one-of-a-kind experience your guests won’t soon forget.

Centrally located in downtown Phoenix within Heritage & Science Park, the Science Center is easy to get to, and our event coordinators will help you with all the details to ensure your event goes off without a hitch. Trust us—we’ve got event planning down to a science!

Private Event FAQs

We hope you will! The best part of hosting your event at Arizona Science Center is the hands-on nature of our venue. We invite you and your guests to interact with our four levels of exhibitions, where you’ll explore the human body, be awed by the forces of nature, get fascinated by physics and much more. We promise it will make a memorable experience for everyone!

Guests are welcome to park in the Heritage and Science Park Garage, which is conveniently located at the southeast corner of North Fifth Street and East Monroe Street. We also have a convenient rideshare drop-off/pick-up location near our entrance on 5th Street.
