We have events down to a science.

One of New York’s signature spaces for parties, weddings, meetings, film shoots and expos, the New York Hall of Science transforms any event into an extraordinary occasion. Any of our galleries can be configured to suit your gathering, with indoor and outdoor space available. We are now taking bookings for our iconic Great Hall, which has just completed a $25 million restoration. Located just off the Grand Central Parkway and Long Island Expressway with free parking for all events.

The New York Hall of Science promises an experience no other venue can offer.
