On the ground floor, the Square is an optimal space for receptions and pre-dinner drinks while your guests view one of the museum’s many amazing galleries. On warm evenings, receptions can be hosted under the adjacent stone colonnades with sweeping views across Greenwich Park.


The Great Map, situated on the first floor, is a light, open and modern space. The newly-installed lighting and audio rig is a great add-on to create the perfect dramatic backdrop to award ceremonies and gala dinners for up to 580 seated guests.


The museum also houses a lecture theatre, ideal for daytime meetings and conferences, and a photography gallery which opened in 2018; a great space for drinks receptions
