Weddings and private events
The Museum's spaces offer a sublime backdrop for a romantic wedding or memorable private party at any time of year.
As one of London's most iconic venues, we have a grant of approval to hold civil marriages and civil partnerships in 12 of our galleries. They can be used for ceremonies alone, reception-only celebrations or both.
Hintze Hall is our largest venue, which can seat an impressive 450 guests for a ceremony and wedding breakfast. With its beautiful Victorian architecture and soaring arches, it provides the perfect setting to dance the evening away.
For a more intimate celebration, mingle with your guests in the beautiful Images of Nature Gallery. For additional outdoor space, the tranquil and contemporary Darwin Centre courtyard is ideal for a summer wedding or drinks reception.
Earth Hall provides a striking space - guests enter through the pillars of the impressive Exhibition Road entrance, to be seated around Sophie, the world's most complete Stegosaurus skeleton, before you say your vows in front of the suspended globe.
For a perfect finishing touch, choose from an extensive range of gifts in the Museum Shop.
