Casa Del Prado

The Casa del Prado, also known as the Casa, and the adjacent Casa del Prado Theatre are historic reconstructions of buildings from the 1915 Panama-California Exposition. They are also the home to a number of youth arts organizations, the Park & Recreation Dance Program, and the San Diego Botanical Garden Foundation and Library. The Casa del Prado is a building with a full schedule of activities and therefore space is extremely limited for rental opportunities.

The largest venue, The Majorca Room (101), is used mainly for Botanical Foundation meetings and shows, but can hold up to 240 for dinner or 300 for a meeting. Various classrooms hold from 66 to 210. The theatre seats 640. Detailed information on the two beautiful courtyards, available for weddings and receptions, can be found under Casa Patio A and Casa Patio B.

Floor plans for the various rooms are available

Please be aware that the Casa is home to a number of organizations and activities, such as flower shows or dance/musical rehearsal, which may be in progress during your event. We cannot predict the sound level or distraction that these activities may produce.
