Host an Event

Host your event in the iconic halls of the American Museum of Natural History for an unforgettable New York experience.

The American Museum of Natural History is celebrating 150 years as a New York City landmark. Its famous halls and architectural accents offer a number of unique settings for your next gathering. Host a gala dinner under the 94-foot blue whale in the Milstein Hall of Ocean Life, or in the stunning Rose Center for Earth and Space, or enjoy a cocktail reception next to the most dynamic dinosaur displays in the world. 

Hosting an event at the Museum supports scientific research and educational programs.

Special Viewings

Take your guests on a private tour of our permanent Museum halls and special exhibitions. See the latest temporary exhibition, or meander through galleries featuring massive Mesozoic mega-predators—minus the crowds. 

Private Screenings

Reserve the Hayden Planetarium Space Theater—featuring the world’s only high-dynamic range (HDR) planetarium projection system—for an unforgettable tour of the cosmos. Take in a 3-D film in the LeFrak Theater, where a regal Beaux-Arts setting, giant screen, and state-of-the-art sound and projection systems make an indelible impression.
