This beautiful, open space is perfect for events on its own or as a companion area for larger functions.

The museum mezzanine’s prime location on the second floor overlooking the main lobby makes it a perfect location for evening events and receptions. The mezzanine connects to the 4D theater, Cafe and meeting rooms and links to the museum galleries.

The open floor plan makes it functional as its own, singular event space or as a companion area for larger events using the Main Lobby, Vista Room and/or the nearby Meeting Rooms.
