Sea Lion Gallery

Organise your party or dinner in the renovated Seal Lion Gallery in the heart of ARTIS. On the other side of the glass panes, your guests can watch a group of California sea lions swimming past. Use the lighting to create the appropriate atmosphere for your event, or tell your story using the screens on the walls.

Blue Star Room

Enter the North Pavilion and walk up the historic staircase. Look through the windows and admire ARTIS Royal Zoo beneath. You stand between heaven and earth in this room. Stars sparkle on the walls and in the chandelier above, while the carpet beneath your feet depicts a world full of animals and plants. 



De Twee Cheetahs

Gather in the Twee Cheetahs restaurant and look out onto the Savannah through the glass walls, or have a drink on the terrace, from where you can see the Asian elephants in the distance in their new enclosure.

The Twee Cheetahs restaurant is named after the two bronze statues at the entrance. From within the restaurant's towering glass exterior, you can see the Savannah, which is home to the reticulated giraffes, Grévy's zebras and greater kudus. 



During the day, visitors embark on a journey through the planets and galaxies; in the evening, the Planetarium is a wonderful location to host your dinner, party or product presentation.

You can create a feast for the eyes featuring colourful animations on an enormous presentation screen, and dance in the centre of the hall on an elevated circular dance floor. Treat your guests to a 360-degree view of your business presentation or product launch on the curved ceiling. Projections and animations can be created just for you.
