Plan Your Event

Ask us about Elopements and Micro-weddings! 

The RMSC offers elegant, classic, and science-inspired venues for your unforgettable wedding or event. 

Holding a business meeting or corporate event? Planning a family event like a retirement or anniversary party? Consider the intimate Cunningham House, the spacious Eisenhart Auditorium, or our formal Ballroom and Palm Court. Or for an out-of-the-ordinary experience, consider one of the Science Museum galleries or the Strasenburgh Planetarium. 

We can help arrange a truly unique experience for intimate groups of 40 to 60 guests or larger groups of 150 to 200.
