Any of our galleries can be configured to suit your gathering, with indoor and outdoor space available. Our iconic Great Hall is included in our available spaces after undergoing a $25 million restoration, looking as good as it did at the 1964 World’s Fair when it was designed by renowned architect Wallace Harrison.
