Planning a special event has as much to do with attending to the perfection of details as it does with presenting a passion for entertaining. You will find that both pursuits are well served at The Newark Museum of Art, where a professional staff will help you create a memorable and exciting event set against a backdrop of timeless art and culture.
The Museum offers a variety of spaces for entertaining, including the elegant Engelhard Court, the richly decorated Ballantine House, the beautiful Alice Ransom Dreyfuss Memorial Garden, and the Billy Johnson Auditorium.
Whether it is a private wedding or other celebration, corporate entertaining or a conference, the Museum will make your event one to remember.

For ceremonies or company celebrations, consider the Engelhard Court. This spacious environment of classical design, punctuated by marble floors, seventeen-foot ceilings and natural light, is an excellent choice for dinner and dancing. The Court also offers access to the Museum's galleries, which can be toured by your guests before and during your event.

Seated Dinner: 220 guests
The Welcome Center features a brilliant wall to wall overhead Mural and is the gateway to the Museum. With natural light and beaux-arts character, this intermediate space can be rented seperately for corporate or private events or paired with the Court to increase capacity with a lounge and bar.

For small parties, meetings, or conferences, we highly recommend the spaces in the landmark Ballantine House. The oak-paneled Trustees Room and the charming Helen S. Meyner Room, with their grand yet intimate club feeling, are perfect for discussing business or dining in small groups. The Yellow Room is also recommended as a break-out facility for small seminars and workshops.
