Great venue, excellent service, An Eventective User from Brighton, CO

We had a meeting for the Brighton Wrestling Club at the Museum of Nature and Science just a few weeks ago. It is not something we would typically do, but we thought we would make it fun and refreshing, and also get some new faces in the door there. It was held on a Saturday during regular admission times, so it wasn't as expensive as it otherwise may have been if it was an after-hours meeting. We hosted around 75 parents and kids. The staff was amazing. They were prompt, efficient, courteous, and almost invisible. We were provided with a catered lunch, and a large room which offered access to audio/visual equipment so we were able to play videos, as well as launch a powerpoint presentation on the different benefits of joining the Brighton Wrestling Club. We had amazing views of the Denver Skyline from the meeting room, and after lunch, we had access to the rest of the museum, as well as the Planetarium and IMAX theater. I would highly recommend this meeting venue to anybody who is interested. It is EXTREMELY expensive, though, to host a catered venue. I am not entirely sure of the whole pricing for it, but I do know it was several thousand dollars to host as many people as we did and have it catered. They can do larger or smaller meetings there, depending on your needs, and have the facilities to accommodate up to 3000 people at any given time.
