Unique meeting and event spaces that inspire creativity.
We are pleased to offer our Fisher Bay Observatory Gallery & Terrace and Kanbar Forum for daytime business meetings, team building, and seminars every day of the week. Take advantage of a unique opportunity and bring your team or clients offsite to an exciting venue that inspires creativity. All meeting packages include guest admission to the museum during open hours (except closed Mondays and Tuesdays).
We also have the unique opportunity to host daytime events in larger gallery spaces on closed Mondays and Tuesdays. The Bechtel Central & Outdoor Gallery is our largest single-gallery space and can accommodate trade shows, luncheons for 500 guests, or theater-style presentations for 600.
With our gorgeous Bay Bridge views, ample outdoor space, unique gallery designs, flexible layouts, and engaging exhibits, the Exploratorium is also your ideal venue for location shoots and filmings.
The sweeping views from our Fisher Bay Observatory Gallery & Terrace make the perfect setting to inspire your group or clients. The built-in audiovisual systems make this room a turn-key option for your next offsite or client presentation. This indoor/outdoor space can be set up in various ways and can accommodate up to 160 guests seated at rounds inside and 200 for a standing reception (325 standing inclusive of the outdoor Terrace).
The Kanbar Forum features state-of-the-art sound and projection systems, making it the perfect venue for seminars, lectures, presentations, and screenings. This flexible theater does not have fixed seating and can fit up to 200 theater-style, 100 cabaret-style, 40 at rounds, and 250 standing.
The museum is closed to the public on Mondays and Tuesdays, giving you the unique opportunity to book single gallery space or the full facility for your next conference, tradeshow, or another larger event. Take advantage of earlier load in time for evening events or Sunday night load in if needed (additional rental fees apply). The Central Gallery (pictured) can accommodate 500 guests theatre-style or 300 guests at rounds with varying stage and production locations throughout.
Keep your viewers intrigued and engaged with the Exploratorium as your filming backdrop. Located along the historic Embarcadero, the Exploratorium provides a beautiful venue for your indoor or outdoor filming needs. Whether you’d like to feature waterfront views, educational settings, or science exhibits in your video, it’s all here. You can host interviews, performances, cocktail or cooking demos, keynote speakers–all recorded at an iconic San Francisco museum.
