Austin Private Event Venue

The aquarium is an excellent Austin private event venue: it is centrally located and there are a number of rooms to accommodate groups of varying sizes.  Not to mention, the animals and sea life make a stunning backdrop for your guests to enjoy.

With 24,000 square feet of space, the aquarium can host groups of 30 to 590 guests.  Whether you are having a birthday party, a family reunion, or a business meeting, your guests will never forget the day they used the aquarium for their own private party.


For groups larger than 590, we can install a fully enclosed tent outside the facility.  The outdoor tent can be used for dining, entertainment, and extra seating space.  For smaller parties, we can set up in our main concessions area or spread out throughout the aquarium. Our experienced event planner will be glad to help you plan and coordinate any type of gathering or event you have. Alternatively, you can bring your own caterer or service provider based on your needs.  Aquarium guides are available to take you and your guests on an aquarium tour.
