About CuriOdyssey

CuriOdyssey is the ideal venue for any event, including: weddings, cocktail receptions, b'nai mitzvah, birthday parties, anniversary parties, school dances, and more. Our four-tiered Redwood Hall is more than 8,000 square feet and is largely composed of rich, re-purposed wood. For large events, the whole Hall can be rented out and allows for a feeling of intimacy while accommodating up to 350 seated guests. The top level is over 2,000 square feet, and boasts a stunning view of the Bay. The museum is conveniently located off Route 101, just ten minutes from San Francisco International Airport, 20 minutes from the city of San Francisco, and 40 minutes from San Jose. For evening events, guests may have access to our beautiful gardens and our main building, which houses a variety of fascinating interactive exhibits. With prior arrangement with our Wildlife Department, you may also be able to include an up close encounter with one of our many animal ambassadors.
