 A landmark historic building in the heart of San Francisco, the Asian Art Museum was thoughtfully expanded in 2003 through a collaboration with Gae Aulenti, the visionary behind Paris’s Musée d’Orsay. Today, the musuem’s signature Beaux Arts-style is complemented with new architectural elements such as its spacious, indoor sky-lit court.

The Asian Art Museum offers diverse and adaptable spaces for celebrations of any size. Whether you need a space for your wedding ceremony (the marble staircase is a favorite), a cocktail reception, a formal catered dinner, or somewhere you can dance into the wee hours, enjoy three floors of flexible venue options to choose from.
Expanded in 2013 through a collaboration with celebrated architect Gae Aulenti, the Asian Art Museum is housed in a landmark, Beaux Arts-style building, now sporting impressive enhancements such as its spacious, indoor sky-lit court.

Choose from three floors of flexible venue space for private or corporate events of all sizes, from a few dozen to a few hundred guests.  Whether you’re throwing a black-tie cocktail reception or an intimate catered dinner, your event guests can celebrate while surrounded by the world’s best collections of historic and contemporary Asian Art.
