Really Nice Event Venue - An Eventective User

Holiday party for a professional organization held in the "Street of Detroit" area of the museum. The area was intimate and warm-feeling and this completely negated any possible sterile effects that one might attribute to a museum environment. The staff was incredibly helpful as was the recommended caterer. Special thanks to Lorraine Peake, Event Manager - personable and incredibly on top of things!
