Spend a night at the museum - the Governor Phillip Hall accommodates up to 120 guests for a banquet, set against a dramatically-lit backdrop of sandstone and brick. Your guests can glimpse the remains of the earliest foundations of British colonisation in Australia through glass openings, and mingle freely among the exhibits.
The First Fleet Gallery overlooks the hall from level 1, and is ideal for pre-dinner drinks. Incorporating permanent and temporary exhibits, Governor Phillip Hall and the First Fleet Gallery can accommodate up to 250 for cocktail parties.
An extraordinary space for an intimate dinner or cocktail party, the Viewing Cube’s cantilevered glass structure has spectacular views of Phillip Street and Circular Quay.
