The Main Hall

Elegant cocktail receptions and sophisticated seated dinners take place in the magnificent marble-clad Main Hall of the Driehaus Museum. The Hall rises dramatically through two stories and features a rich variety of marbles from both Europe and America. It was the lavish use of marble throughout this space that gave rise to the mansion’s moniker of the Marble Palace.
