The George and Barbara Bush Grand Hall

This magnificent space is the ideal setting for a reception or seated dinner. Featuring terrazzo floors, glass archways and a 50-foot ceiling, it truly is a Grand Hall. The open floor plan allows for various event layouts and design options. Centrally located, the Grand Hall provides guests with access to all the museum’s exhibits as well as the McGovern Theater.

The Amazing Body Gallery

The Amazing Body Gallery allows guest to experience the human body as they journey through the exhibit’s a-maze-ing passages. Traveling from the giant beating heart, through the colon, and into the brain, guests enter a world of discovery. Once inside the network of corridors, guests get a sense of the exhibit’s vast size. The ideal location for a networking reception, this exhibit offers intimate niches for conversation. Walking through the brain and gazing into a giant human eye provides attendees an array of conversation starters. Their voyage continues through every life-sustaining organ of the amazing body and connects to the adjacent You: The Exhibit.
