We were there on Labor a day and the tail end of hurricane Hermine. While we did not get the rain predicted, there was crazy wind and surf all evening. Under the tent, we were completely protected from the wind and yet still had a perfect view of the ocean and the beautiful surf. The staff was extremely helpful, tied the tent down completely, and we enjoyed a day of sun, clouds, rainbows and sunsets. Could not have been more perfect.

We had our wedding at Seacoast Science Center a month ago and everything was so beautiful!! The location of SSC is perfect and especially for my husband and I! When we stand out and look to the ocean and land, the two towns you see are Kittery and New Castle and we have only lived in the those two towns together. We knew right when we saw it that is exactly what we wanted and where we wanted to get married. We talked to Amanda, who always responded so quickly to us and was so helpful! It was also really nice that the SSC provided small pop-up tents and tables that we did not have to rent the day of the wedding. We had absolutely perfect weather for our wedding, but even if we hadn't it still would have been a beautiful location and everyone would have still loved it just as much!

The Seacoast Science Center was perfect! All the exhibits were light & guests enjoyed s'mores by fire pit station outside by the ocean. The Director Amanda & her helper were so very helpful before, during & after reception. This is a very special place!

We were looking for a seaside venue for our ceremony and reception. We immediately fell in love with the Seacoast Science Center. The view is amazing and makes for the most gorgeous backdrop you could ever ask for! The outstanding service we received from Amanda started from the day we signed the contract! I could not have asked for a better venue.

We recently had our wedding at the Seacoast Science Center, and could not have asked for a more perfect setting (luckily, we also had a perfect weather). We worked with Amanda, who was very helpful and responsive during the entire planning process. For the most part you are on your own when planning and coordinating vendors for the day, but Amanda would also make recommendations based on who she had worked with in the past. The day of our wedding, the SSC staff was very friendly, and accommodating, even storing items overnight because we ran out of room in the car. Thanks to Amanda and the SSC for helping to make our day perfect!

This venue is INCREDIBLE. There are options for an indoor ceremony if the weather turns or many options for outdoor ceremonies. The organization is benefiting marine education for all ages so ultimately you're helping a great cause. Everyone at the SSC is so helpful and easy to work with. They have a tent on site and provide lighting. The ocean views are few and far between with lighthouses, lobster boats and islands. The most beautiful, elegant and creative spot for a seaside wedding. They allow the flexibility of multiple options with vendors but encourage you to support local businesses who they are familiar with. Simply the best!

The Seacoast Science Center is one of the most natural, serene, and majestic wedding sites you could have. We had our wedding ceremony & reception there in August and it was the most beautiful and memorable occasions our families have ever experienced. It was not only a wedding, a party, but a family reunion. At first, this site was not our first choice because we were concerned about the number of variables or having to rent the tables, chairs, glasses, silverware, etc. But once you really wrap your head and arms around it - you have a blank canvas where you can truly create an event that you've always dreamed of, in the exact way you've always dreamed of. We also did it cost effectively (it looked like a $100K wedding but was no where near that) and there was a much warmer, serene and layed back feel to the event - it was close to heaven as you can get. This is all hard to describe - but I would take this every day of the week over a mundane function hall. We had a vision of what it could be and developed this vision as we went along. The Site Manager was very friendly and accommodating and helped us every step of the way. This is truly a hidden gem.

So happy that we chose the SSC for our wedding! Amanda was very responsive and super friendly! She promptly answered all of our questions which helped our planning to run smoothly! And then there is the venue itself....which is just magnificent! The gorgeous white tent (with lighting) is beautifully set up overlooking the water. And the view is breathtaking! Many of our guests commented on how spectacular the SSC was and asked how we found it! And we are so glad we did!

The Seacoast Science Center was a wonderful venue!!!! I can't say enough good things about this venue or its staff. Amanda was a pleasure to work with from Day 1, very responsive, knowledgeable and friendly as was all of the Seacoast Science Center staff. Not to mention very willing to help with anything and everything. I know Amanda did a lot on the day of as well :) And the venue- wow!! My guests couldn't stop raving about how beautiful it was. So much natural beauty and space and the tent the Science Center has set up is very nice, large and having a floor is great! We got very lucky with amazingly beautiful weather but this venue would make a cloudy day beautiful as well. Best of all, all of the money we paid for the venue goes toward environmental education, which is wonderful. Thank you Amanda and the Seacoast Science Center for making our wedding great!!
