The Ames Family Atrium is the majestic centerpiece to the museum’s recently completed eight-year expansion and renovation project. Designed by Rafael Viñoly, the soaring, three- story-high ceiling accentuates the grandeur of the glass-enclosed space, centrally located in the heart of the world-renowned galleries of the museum. Anchored by the east and west planters, the atrium is a blank slate suitable for a diverse suite of gatherings. The full space may be rented for a large gathering, or a portion of the space can be rented for a more intimate event. Additionally, the south terrace can be rented with the atrium to host your wedding ceremony outside during warmer months.
Ideal for events such as weddings, galas, corporate dinners and gatherings, holiday parties, bar/bat mitzvahs, the atrium features the restored marble façade of the museum's original 1916 building that can serve as an impressive backdrop for your function.
