This is the second time we've hosted our annual event at the museum, and Madeleine was a pleasure to work with once again! It's reassuring knowing we have a dependable host in an awesome space. Definitely recommend!

Perfect space for our company luncheon! We had a total of 70 guests and set up two long tables down the center of the main space, with the buffet set along the hallway. As a great bonus we were able to play music through the in house Sonos system. Madeleine was very helpful and so easy to work with. Thanks for making this event a breeze!

This was an amazing venue with an even more amazing host! Madeleine was extremely responsive and helpful both pre event and throughout the event itself, and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect space!
