Event Spaces

The Museum is an extraordinarily versatile setting, comfortably able to accommodate groups numbering 25 to 4,500. Since all our event venues overlook the Charles River, you are guaranteed an incomparable backdrop for your special occasion.

Our venues are presented here roughly in order of capacity (largest to smallest), with theater spaces listed last. Please note that the Blue Wing may be booked alone or in combination with the Green Wing. The entire Museum may also be reserved. Capacities vary depending on type of event.
