Exhibition private viewing
Treat your guests with private access to one of our world-class special exhibitions or unique art galleries.
After the public have left the museum, you’ll have the gallery all to yourselves, adding an extra dimension to your event and making it a really memorable evening.
Greet your guests in the Rotunda with drinks and canapés, or host an exhibition private view in conjunction with another event.
We can also arrange for museum experts to answer questions or guide guests around the exhibition.
Available for evening events Monday-Saturday.
Number of guests is dependent on choice of gallery and style of event.
All evening venue hire includes the use of the Rotunda area, plus the support of our venue hire coordinator, front of house and operations staff, cleaners and porters. We provide a cloakroom (not staffed), audio visual and public address equipment.
A limited catering offer may be available, please contact us to discuss.
