Visit Bartolotta Catering & Events at Discovery World

Yes, events can occur while the museum is open. However, some locations can become less private while the museum is open due to general admission traffic.

If a private space is booked for your event, no admission fee will apply. However, if exhibit areas of the museum are needed, fees will apply depending on time of day.

Dates and availability need to be confirmed before a hold is placed. Once a date and its availability are confirmed, we will send you a contract. We ask that you wait to send out any invitations for your event until all parties have signed the contract.
