  • Our wedding at the Exploratorium was absolutely perfect! We knew we were looking for a unique wedding venue that let our personalities shine through and we found just that in the Exploratorium’s quirky vibe and spectacular views. After our initial tour, Katie and the rest of the staff really went above and beyond to make sure our event was everything we hoped it would be and more. Everyone on staff was incredibly responsive and communicative throughout our planning process. Katie recommended excellent catering and planning professionals that worked flawlessly with the venue and staff. As our date approached, we were able to tour our rental space with our planning crew multiple times so we knew everything would run smoothly. To top it off, Katie arranged for some of our favorite exhibits from around the Exploratorium to be brought into our reception space. The exhibits were a hit with the guests and got people talking who would otherwise never have struck up a conversation. We have he... Read more

    Kate - thank you so much! You and Steve were a perfect couple and hosted the most beautiful wedding. I loved working with you both and watching your guests interact with and enjoy the Exploratorium to the fullest! The ceremony set up in the Observatory was stunning and those dancing photos in the East Gallery were too fun. Thank you for sharing your special day with us and hope to see you both back at the museum next year!

  • My husband and I have had the pleasure of being a part of several events at The Exploratorium. The absolute care and attention to detail is second-to-none. We are actually wedding photographers in real-life, and are fortunate to be a part of some very special gatherings around the Bay Area. The Exploratorium and its staff are something special. Not only is the location unique and one-of-a-kind, it is also located in one of the most convenient parts of San Francisco. The ability to have your guests arrive by Ferry, train, car, bus, or maybe even a rickshaw? It's one of those things that some couples overlook when they decide on a venue. On the Embarcadero you have all of these options at your disposal. Another incredible plus is the preferred vendors they have access to. During every event we have attended, the catering has been superb, the decor trendy, yet classic, the florals stunning, and the entertainment top flight. We encourage every couple considering a one-of-a-kind wedding ... Read more

    Michaela, you are too kind. We absolutely loved working with you and Tim and it was so fun to watch a talented photography vendor couple get in front of the camera. You both were a dream and we are so happy you have been to so many Exploratorium events. We hope to see you in museum again soon. Thank you both!

  • My husband and I threw a wedding reception at the Exploratorium. We couldn’t have been more happy with the experience. Our guests still mention how extraordinary it was to be drinking and dancing at the museum, along with so many incredible interactive exhibits. When it came to logistics the Exploratorium team was so helpful and accommodating. We would recommend this as a wedding venue without reservations.

  • We loved having our wedding ceremony and reception at the Exploratorium! - Space: The museum galleries were large spacious rooms that didn't feel too open where your guests would get lost because we could control the flow of our guests from one room to another so that they could experience all of the exhibits while staying close to the party. - Exhibits: Fun and available throughout the night! Great reception venue if your guests have kids - we got a lot of positive feedback from our guests with young children who loved that their kids were entertained the whole night - Ambiance: Along with our other vendors (i.e. florist, caterer, etc), the reception area was created to have a contemporary, upscale, warm feeling - Service: Katie (the museum service/events coordinator) was fantastic to work with! Very accommodating (esp. when our family/bridal party needed extra space/rooms) and worked very collaboratively with our other vendors - Views of the Bay and SF: Couldn't ask for a b... Read more

    Thank you so much for your lovely review Jillian, you and Christopher were such a joy to work with and we were so happy to celebrate with you! We loved watching your guests interact with the exhibits and you designed the space so perfectly. This made for a very smooth event for us all. And your favors were incredible, right on theme with our Tinkering Studio. Thank you again and we look forward to seeing you back at the Exploratorium, hopefully very soon!
