The science center was great. We had our ceremony in the star theater which was absolutely beautiful. And they were very accommodating and easy to work with.Sent on 07/08/2019

Magical wedding day at the Science Center
We had both our reception and ceremony at the Science Center. Ronnie and the Science Center staff were so helpful and made our day go off without a hitch! Our entire day there was so magical!Sent on 06/27/2019
Our ceremony was in the Star Theater, with 120 guests, which I would guess is max capacity. We got to pick out star displays for before, during, and after the ceremony, so the guests got a little bit of a show. I wasn’t sure what to do with ceremony decor so Ronnie recommended basic flowers/ferns in front of the podium. I’m so glad I took his advice because my ceremony looked so classy. We had fireworks go off right when we kissed which was a big crowd pleaser!
Our reception was in Principal Hall with 170 guests. We went minimal on decor here too, and instead got three BOGOs (stars and a moon). People were taking selfies with the moon all night (it looked very realistic), so that was a hit.
Overall the price was very reasonable for such a unique location, and if you hold back on decor, you can really pull off an affordable wedding here! I highly recommend.

The Science Center of Iowa is the perfect place to have a wedding. It is fun, big and classy. Ronnie Wells , the facility rental manager is a life-saver. He is professional, kind, enthusiastic and sincere. He worked very well with my husband and I and he showed us the absolute best that the SCI had to offer. Ronnie made everything a breeze and I truly believe our wedding would not have gone so perfectly without him. He made every accommodation for myself and my family possible, even though the facility was going through some minor remodel on the escalator and stairs which made getting around the venue difficult, but with his help it wasn't an inconvenience.Sent on 02/26/2018
It feels like they do everything for you at SCI. The base cost of the venue was easy to understand, and the upgrades (Bar, tables etc) were also transparent and very reasonable. Ronnie and the others at SCI worked hard to tie their responsibilities in with the catering and cake and everything went smoothly. Ronnie did his best to keep my husband and I involved, to make our ceremony and reception perfect and unique to us. The space was perfect for my family and everyone had fun. I know that a crazy group like us can be a lot to handle but Ronnie and the others were amazing at putting up with us and helping us out entirely. I will recommend SCI to anyone and everyone for all types of events and I will be working with them again if ever I need space for entertaining again!
