The grand entrance. Soaring Romanesque arches. Gilt and terracotta ceiling panels. A magnificent stone staircase… and a giant Diplodocus skeleton cast centrepiece.

In fact, Hintze Hall’s dramatic sense of place makes it popular for all kinds of events. As the heart of the Museum and one of London’s largest and most flexible venues, Hintze Hall is an example of Victorian architecture at its most magnificent.

Available once the Museum closes its doors in the evenings, we’ve held all sorts of events from after-show parties, rock concerts, press launches, fashion shows and awards ceremonies. As well as dinner dances, buffets, bar and bat mitzvahs, anniversaries and weddings.

Hintze Hall’s size and shape make it flexible enough to accommodate a variety of different layouts.

Depending on the number of people and the nature of your event, you can also hire extra space and galleries off the main hall to meet your specific needs.
