Food and Drink

Outdoor Food Pavilion

Our scenic grounds provide plenty of perfect picnicking spots. Sit under the umbrellas at the sunny Food Pavilion or spread out at a picnic table under a shady tree. During school vacation weeks and in the summer, lunch and snack items are available for purchase from Eric's LaPatisserie Café either in the Snack Area or the Food Pavilion (depending on the weather).

Snack Area

The museum's snack area on the middle level offers an indoor eating space year-round.  Bring your own lunch, or purchase drinks, light lunch items, and snacks from our vending machines (now accepting cash or credit cards).

Food Pavilion

During June-August, enjoy sandwiches and snacks from Eric's LaPatisserie Cafe at our outdoor Food Pavilion. The current lunch service schedule is Tuesday - Saturday, 11:30 a.m. - 2:00 p.m., through September 2, 2017.

Let Us Recommend...

The EcoTarium does not serve breakfast or dinner on-site. We are conveniently located near a wide range of restaurants offering a quick bite to go, an elegant sit-down dinner or something in between. Our customer service associates would be happy to direct you to local eateries.

State law prohibits guests from bringing alcoholic beverages onto the museum grounds.
