It’s the perfect place for your guests to interact and mingle throughout the day – or night.

Exhibit Galleries

Having an event where you can be hands-on the whole time isn’t something that comes along often. But, when you plan your event at The Leo, you can have fun while roaming the second floor exhibit galleries. Plan your even now and see what The Leonardo is all about. From Leonardo’s Laboratory to our newest original exhibit, Flight (taking off August 2016), ask our events team how an exhibit space can be the perfect fit for your event.

Capacity: 25-500

Entire Museum Buyout

Use the whole museum to make a statement and throw a bash – just like City Weekly with their Best of Utah celebration or Google Fiber’s Salt Lake announcement. Guests will have access to the whole museum where they can wander with wonder, ask big questions and find their inner genius. Now, who wouldn’t want that?

Capacity: 2,000
