About Us

The facilities at MCASD La Jolla can be rented throughout the year, accommodating a wide variety of activities, for either corporations or individuals. Situated directly across the street from the La Jolla Cove, the Museum's spectacular ocean views and distinctive architectural design make it an exclusive location for special events.

Sherwood Auditorium, a 492-seat proscenium stage theatre, is perfect for lectures, film screenings, and performing arts. Axline Court, the Museum's grand enclosed exhibition space, is ideal for elegant receptions. The Coast Room with its stunning ocean views has state of the art audiovisual capabilities and is suitable for meetings, lectures, workshops and luncheons. This space, along with the Oceanview Terrace, is a memorable location for wedding ceremonies, receptions, private parties and corporate events.

The Pacific Union Pocket Park is quickly becoming a favorite spot for smaller wedding ceremonies. Located on the corner of Cuvier Street and Coast Boulevard, the park overlooks the Pacific Ocean and is perfect for intimate gatherings. The galleries can also be rented for a portion of the event so that guests may have the opportunity to view the complete exhibition.
