Science Museum of Minnesota

The Science Museum of Minnesota is a dramatic setting for a variety of private parties and events. Completed in 1999, the 370,000 square-foot facility was built into the bluffs overlooking the Mississippi River in downtown Saint Paul and features stunning panoramic vistas of the river in addition to the Museum’s magnificent permanent collection and traveling exhibits. When you host an event at the Science Museum of Minnesota, you (and your guests) can have access to all that the Museum offers.

As the Museum’s exclusive catering partner, Lancer Catering operates a full-service on-site catering kitchen giving us the ability to deliver restaurant-quality cuisine with a variety of options for events of all sizes and styles.
