Event Spaces

Avery Court: The first international style space in an American museum, the court features a spectacular skylight and a superb working fountain sculpture, Venus with Nymph and Satyr, dated 1600, made for a garden in Florence by the Mannerist sculptor Pietro Francavilla.

Morgan Great Hall: Elegant Morgan Great Hall offers a breathtaking view of large scale Contemporary works. With majestic 50-foot high ceilings, the Great Hall seats up to 120 for dinner and allows 200 for a reception.

Aetna Theater & Loctite Lobby: For formal presentations requiring more extensive audio visual capabilities, Aetna Theater is fully equipped with a stage and audio visual equipment. Floor-to-ceiling lyrical Neo-Romantic murals line the walls of the classic Art Deco theater, originally opened in 1934. The theater holds up to 284 guests and has an adjoining lobby for small pre- and post-event receptions.

Hartford Courant Room, Museum Cafe & Gengras Court: For more intimate gatherings, the Hartford Courant Room provides the perfect location for business breakfasts, luncheons, meetings, presentations, lectures, and small dinner parties. Capacity for a seated meal, lecture or standing reception is 50. The museum café also serves smaller business groups for breakfast meetings, evening cocktail receptions and dinner events. This space can be used in conjunction with the adjoining outdoor Gengras Court during the warmer months. Capacity is 75 for a seated meal and 100 for a standing reception in the café.
