The Florida Museum offers two rental spaces for events. Rent one or both, depending on your needs. Your guests will be able to explore our permanent exhibits for free, and if you want to offer your guests an additional adventure, you can rent the Butterfly Rainforest and/or our featured exhibit.
Our primary rental space is perfect for sit-down dinners, parties with dancing, receptions and presentations. The room has a drop-down screen, LCD projector and sound system, and can seat around 160 with a dance or awards area, depending on exhibit and table configuration. Rental of Denny Gallery includes use of Galleria space.
Featuring the Wall of Wings display, this area is an intimate space ideal for cocktail hours, small dinners and lectures. The room has an LCD projector and drop-down screen, and can seat 50 for a dinner or hold around 100 for a reception.
