Recommendations

Impressive Venue for Corporate Event, from SOUTH PORTLAND, ME

I recently attended the Prudential Spirit of Community Awards ceremony and reception at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. It was a wonderful venue for the event that included an awards presentation, special speakers and reception. The reception was held in the rotunda which was an impressive space and guests were allowed to mingle and view the exhibits which was a lot of fun. The staff was wonderful and the catering was some of the best I have had at a private event. I would definitely recommend this venue for a corporate event!
