Great venue for 150 people - An Eventective User from New York, NY

The venue staff were great, very responsive to our inquiries. The venue was amazing. The entire building is for you to use! We used the first floor for cocktail hour, and the third floor for the reception. Guests could also enjoy the museum while they waited to go upstairs. Your reservation comes with an 8-hour rental (2 hours setup, 5 hours event, 1 hour clean-up). The amount of time for set-up (2 hours) was a bit too short so we had to request an additional hour before hand, and had to get an extra hour for clean-up. Keep this in mind if you plan on having an elaborately decorated wedding. Your decorator will need to bring extra manpower to pull it off! If you plan on serving food, keep in mind that the kitchen is rather small and can only hold about 3 people at a time. Be sure that the caterer checks out the place and knows how to work the equipment there.
