Reception Gallery

The Reception Gallery serves as a great extension space for meetings. This versatile space welcomes guests as they arrive at the second floor of the Presidential Library. It features an open concept with natural light from surrounding windows that offer views of the Museum and Union Square Park. It also can be used as a venue of its own for events such as lunches.
