Additional Information

RICHARD L. SPEES BUILDING This building is the main entrance to the facility. The Spees Building consists of 2 floors and 3 main exhibit areas for your guests to explore. The entire building can accommodate up to 500 guests for a standing reception and 300 guests for seated dining, split on two floors. There are three levels that can be rented in the Spees Building. RONALD V. DELLUMS BUILDING On the first level, this building offers four beautiful private rooms known as the Galileo Room, Kepler Room, Copernicus Room and the Hauben Resource Center Room. All the rooms are perfect for meetings, luncheons, dinners and parties. Each of them boast AV capabilities with overhead LCD projectors, drop down screens and dimming lighting. Additionally, our Kaiser Library is excellent for quaint get together's, cocktail socials, meetings and small luncheons or dinners. This building houses our largest exhibition space on its second level, named Astronomy Hall. This hall houses our newest exhibit, Bill Nye’s Climate. PLEIADES COURTYARD Includes Amphitheater, Café Tent, and EnviroGarden This fascinating outdoor space is perfect alone or as an add–on to one of our buildings. Located between the Spees and the Dellums Buildings, Amphitheater and the EnviroGarden are joined by the Pleiades Courtyard — all of which provides an informal presentation space or a lovely outdoor setting for special events such as weddings, anniversaries, family reunions, corporate or client appreciation dinners. Your guests can wander, mingle and dance under the stars in this magical space. The Amphitheater accommodates up to 130 guests. The rental of this space includes the Café Patio, which can hold another 100 guests for a seated banquet. Additional guests may be accommodated within the Pleiades Courtyard. OBSERVATORY COMPLEX Located next to the Dellums Building, this space houses Chabot’s powerful telescopes. With the help of one of our expert astronomers you and your guests can explore the magnificent night sky and discover stars, planets and colorful nebulae clearly visible though our 8” and 20” refractor telescopes and our 36” reflector telescope. The Observatory Complex is perfect for spectacular wedding ceremony or tented party for up to 100 seated or 150 standing guests. Private rental of the telescopes is available in 2–hour increments, weather permitting, alone or as part of an event.
