Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • A magnificent view of the sparkling Pittsburgh skyline plus interactive exhibits make this an exciting wedding venue. Point View Hall, in the Science Center’s PPG Pavilion, is a modern space with cool, neutral tones and an outdoor terrace, offering unparalleled city views

  • You think chemistry is romantic? Try astronomy! Host your ceremony in the Buhl Planetarium under an amazing canopy of stars and it will feel like the entire universe is yours. You can even opt to add a laser show to your event.
  • Science is cool, especially during cocktail hour when their staff can safely give your drinks a smoky effect. They can create an atmospheric fog on the dance floor, tasty, unique s’mores with a Ruben’s Tube, and even make your hair stand on end with their Van de Graaff generator!
