New York Hall of Science




One of New York’s signature spaces for an unforgettable evening, the New York Hall of Science transforms into your dream wedding for an extraordinary experience. Located just off the Grand Central Parkway and Long Island Expressway, NYSCI was founded at the 1964–65 World’s Fair and has evolved into New York’s center for interactive science exploration. Picture saying “I do” before all your loved ones beneath a dramatic white art installation in the Central Pavilion. After your magical ceremony, guests will enjoy cocktails in the circular, bi-level rotunda, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows. Guests will also enjoy perusing the museum’s varied exhibits and galleries. As the evening’s festivities get going, the reception of your dreams takes place in the Anthony Viscusi gallery. Surrounded by white walls, this oval-shaped room is your personal canvas. Dance beneath dramatic sails and celebrate long into the night. The New York Hall of Science promises an experience no other venue can offer.
