The historic and regal building that houses the Asian Art Museum is as captivating as the art inside. Originally built as the main public library of San Francisco in 1917, the building was adaptively converted into the Asian Art Museum in 2003. The result is a striking blend of Beaux-Arts opulence and the clean lines of modern design. With five flexible event spaces, the museum can accommodate a wide variety of events from dinners and meetings for up to 250 to receptions for up to 1,400. Private gallery tours are perfect for incentive and spouse programs.
Three floors of stunning galleries are available for your guests’ enjoyment. The Asian Art Museum is one of San Francisco’s premier arts institutions and home to a world-renowned collection of more than 18,000 Asian Art treasures spanning 6,000 years of history. A robust schedule of special exhibitions can draw guests to your event and provide built-in entertainment. Docents and storytellers are available to educate and entertain your guests.
The museum’s grand ballroom Samsung Hall features travertine marble walls, large lattice work windows, a gorgeous chandelier and rich architectural details. Samsung Hall is perfect for dinners, meetings and receptions with up to 250 guests. Leading into Samsung Hall, the Loggia is a large u-shaped balcony perfect for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres before a dinner or meeting in Samsung Hall. The Loggia is built in the Beaux-Arts style with a barrel-vaulted ceiling and stately columns. Additional event spaces include two expansive interior courts. Both the North and South Courts are crowned with glass ceilings floating three stories above stone floors. Each court is ideal for presentations, receptions and dinners for up to 250 guests.
