Celebration 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 exhibits, 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 5th Street and East Monroe Street. We also have a convenient rideshare drop-off/pick-up location near our entrance on 5th Street. Validation, which discounts the amount guests pay, is offered at no additional charge. If you’re looking to pay for your guest parking completely, pre-paid parking passes for Heritage Garage are available for purchase.
