The Florida Museum of Natural History in Gainesville provides a stunning venue for your special event. With adventures and artifacts around every turn, the Museum is a unique and unparalleled alternative to traditional reception halls.

Whatever you are celebrating, we’re here to help you welcome your guests in style. You can be assured your event will go down in history at the Florida Museum!

The Florida Museum has two rental spaces for events — the Denny Gallery+Galleria and the Thompson Gallery. We’ve hosted dinners, weddings, galas, award ceremonies, presentations, client appreciation events, bar and bat mitzvahs, anniversary parties, and more, and can accommodate up to 50 for a seated dinner or wedding reception*.
