A Space for Every Occasion
From a stunning entryway to a state-of-the-art theater, the Rubin Museum has a space just right for any event. The Museum’s lobby features a dramatic spiral staircase that leads to six floors of galleries. It can be used alone for intimate gatherings as well as for receptions before or after programming in the theater. Adjacent to the lobby is the dramatically arcaded colonnade, which can be used for seated dinners or cocktail receptions. For increased flexibility and added capacity, the lobby and colonnade, equipped with customized LED lighting, can be used in tandem. The Museum’s cherrywood-lined theater is the ideal space for performances, screenings, and seminars—with a stage, pristine sound and lighting, and flexible seating—but can also function as a dramatic setting for dinner or cocktails.
