Memorable Events Begin With Memorable Spaces

State Street Corporation Lobby

Bounded on the west and north sides by towering glass walls overlooking Boston’s skyline, the east side displays Sandra and Gerald Fineberg Art Wall, featuring large-scale works by leading contemporary artists. This space provides a dramatic setting for any event.

Water Café 

Located just off the State Street Corporation Lobby and overlooking the HarborWalk, the Water Café offers a more intimate event space. The north wall of the Café opens onto the Putnam Investments Plaza, a sheltered outdoor patio at the water’s edge. 

Putnam Investments Plaza

Located at the water’s edge, the Putnam Investments Plaza offers an outdoor patio with striking views. In inclement weather, the Putnam Investments Plaza can be tented and heated.

Barbara Lee Family Foundation Theater

Located on the second floor of the museum, the Barbara Lee Family Foundation Theater provides magnificent views of Boston Harbor and the downtown skyline. The glass walls of the theater can be covered by three different layers of shade, ranging from sheer to complete blackout, or remain uncovered to reveal the stunning backdrop. With 325 seats, it is an ideal space for annual meetings, product introductions, award presentations, and other special events.
