Martha A. And Robert S. Rubin Pavilion And Lobby

Standing: 500 max., Seated: 300 max.

Redesigned in 2004 by Polshek Partnership Architects, this modern, elegant space is 19,320 square feet and features an expansive sheer glass pavilion that overlooks our welcoming public plaza. The brick piers dividing the pavilion and adjacent lobby are the same bricks that once enclosed our five front doors, excavated, restored, and permanently exposed in the space. This grand pavilion artfully melds the historical and contemporary components of the building.

Beaux-Arts Court

Standing: 1200 max., Seated: 880 max.

This magnificent, timeless space measures 10,000 square feet and two stories high, rising 60 feet above the floor to culminate in a dramatic skylight. It boasts historic features such as original archways, a large brass chandelier, and an updated glass-tile floor originally completed in 1927. The space is incredibly beautiful and makes for a perfect museum wedding. Events held in the Beaux-Arts Court have included seated wedding ceremonies, holiday parties, corporate events, fundraising events, and sit-down dinners with dancing.

The Norm
