Make a statement by hosting your next event at the museum.
The museum’s stunning waterfront location on Sydney Harbour is ideal for both major and boutique events. With distinctive architectural design and views of the city skyline, there’s an exciting range of unique venue options to suit your needs.
Dynamic indoor-outdoor spaces let you create one‑of‑a‑kind experiences, from intimate 30 people gatherings to whole precinct events of more than 2,500.
Make a statement by hosting your next event on a stunning heritage vessel such as HMB Endeavour, on top of a de‑commissioned Navy Destroyer or next to the 100‑year‑old Cape Bowling Green Lighthouse. Just a stone’s throw from Sydney’s CBD and International Convention Centre in Darling Harbour, it’s the ideal location for entertaining.
