Private Groups

Exploring the wonders of science can be more fun when you discover together as a group! Coordinate 10 or more friends, tykes, coworkers or seniors on any day of the week and your group will receive incredible savings.

Create a day to remember. Your visit can include our hands-on exhibits, which stretch throughout five buildings, a cutting edge IMAX film in either 2D or 3D, a planetarium show or a live science demonstration. You could even finish off your evening with a laser light show! We guarantee your experience will expand your perception of both science and fun.

Reservations are required. To receive discounts for groups consisting of 10 or more paying individuals, please contact our staff with at least 48 hour advance notice to set up your reservation. Use our online reservation form or call (206) 443-3611 to schedule your group visit now. Check our group rates page for pricing.

Edible Options
We can spice up your visit with meal and snack options to entice even the most finicky. Whether it's as simple as popcorn and beverages during an IMAX film, pizza and sandwiches for a quick bite or full course lunch and dinner options for those carnivores or herbivores, our café and concession staff has tons of delectable selections. We require at one week's notice to arrange food packages for your group. Contact our café staff directly at (206) 727-2355. Another great alternative is to pack sack lunches and enjoy them in our covered brown-bag area! Learn More
