Dinner in Earth Hall

The Natural History Museum has a worldwide reputation for hosting stunning and memorable events.

The magnificent Hintze Hall will reopen in summer 2017 with a huge blue whale skeleton at its centre. Grand and luxurious, it's our largest venue, with a reception capacity of 1,200 people.

A Stegosaurus welcomes guests to the impressive dinner space in the celestial Earth Hall, while the versatile Darwin Centre provides a more modern venue for guests to enjoy the evening outdoors.

For more intimate events, we recommend including a tour of one of our galleries, such as Earth’s Treasury or Images of Nature, or a visit to the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition to impress your guests.
