Located at the main museum entrance, the foyer is a large, light, open space that comfortably accommodates up to 80 guests for a cocktail style function including bar and catering facilities.

With stunning acoustics, the area is well suited to a traditional cultural welcome or performance, and offers the ideal location to welcome your guests before moving on to your next location, either in the Bay of Islands or within the grounds.
