Satisfy your guests' and event's needs

Select multiple spaces for your guests to experience per hour, such as beginning your cocktail hour on our exquisite exhibition floor and afterwards inviting your guests to our elegant atrium for a dinner reception. Or, combine packages to have multiple floors open simultaneously. Begin a VIP hour on our magnificent outdoor rooftop terrace with panorama views of San Diego, and follow up with opening our largest exhibition floor and the grand atrium for your guests to journey through a two-floor extravagant reception. No matter your needs, we’ll personalize our packages to prioritize your guests’ experience. To learn more on a site visit and visit our magnificent museum, inquire for the next step!
