Our Facilities:
Rent it all, rent one floor, or simply choose the areas that suit your group's needs from our facilities rental list. Whether you are a large organization seeking to offer a fabulous new experience to hundreds of people, or a small group looking for a unique new meeting or party venue, Explora can offer your group just the right space for your event. Explora's rental areas include outdoor patios with seating, upper west and east decks with views, indoor meeting rooms, classroom settings, and even a theater!
