Main Floor

Clifford Carl Hall and Glass Lobby

Located on the museum's main floor, Clifford Carl Hall (known around here as "CCH") has been transformed into everything from the dining room on the Titanic to and Egyptian banquet hall and even a trapeze training school. A well-equipped blank slate, this space can serve as a lecture hall, dance floor or formal dining area for groups of 100 or more. Bring us your ideas and we'll do our best to help you bring them to life.
