Organize an Event

The Science Museum of Western Virginia is a perfect location to host a birthday party or a private event! With a selection of different package options, you can come as a group during the day and enjoy private activities at the envy of other museum guests or hire out the entire museum for an impressive late-night cocktail soirée – the options are infinite!

Birthday parties

We have parties down to a science! Our party packages offer use of a private room for 2 hours, your own party coordinator to help with party details, personalized invitations, refreshments, time to explore the museum’s exhibits and more!

Museum rental

Our spacious museum, located in the heart of Downtown Roanoke, is an ideal location for holding large events, day or night. Guests enjoy mingling with each other and exploring the museum exhibits whilst being cared for by our professional staff to ensure the pressure of event organizing doesn’t fall on you!
