Experienced meeting planners will support you from the very first phone call to the close of your event.

Friendly, Professional Event Experts

We provide trained event staff for each meeting or event so you and your guests are greeted with a friendly face when you walk in the door. They will keep your space clean and your food and beverages refreshed throughout your event.

We have developed great relationships with local hotels, caterers, restaurants, linen and tent companies, team-building organizations, valet services, florists, and just about any other rental firm or vendor you would need. We are happy to make these arrangements on your behalf to streamline the planning process for you.

Full-Service Catering

The Science History Institute offers full-service catering for all of your meeting requirements. Our team is happy to assist you in planning additional gatherings, such as receptions, dinners, and team-building and networking events.

Audiovisual and Technical Support Services

Our tech department provides your group with future-proof audiovisual equipment and an on-call tech manager complimentary with your room rental. All of our conference rooms are equipped with an LED projector, a screen, Wi-Fi, a flip chart, and a podium with microphone where necessary.


Our renovated facility employs ecologically sensitive Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) principles, including new insulation, wall tile made from recycled glass, and bathroom floors made from recycled cans. We work to be green-minded by forgoing single-use products in favor of china, glassware, and flatware. We also make an effort to donate any leftovers we can.

A Convenient, Unique Space in a Historic Neighborhood

Before and after your event your guests can enjoy some of the greatest sights and attractions in Philadelphia. Our conference center is located within walking distance of the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, the Constitution Center, South Street, and many other great Philadelphia tourist attractions and museums, including our own! We are one block from SEPTA bus and subway stops and a short walk from Regional Rail. Numerous parking garages and hotels are located nearby, and we are convenient to the airport, I-95, and I-76.

Ample, Flexible Facilities

With a total of 13,500 square feet across eight rooms, we are well equipped to accommodate your event requirements, whether you need a banquet space as large as 3,500 square feet or a meeting room as small as 400 square feet, or any option in between.
