Museum of Russian Icons
203 Union Street
The Museum of Russian Icons is available for rentals to individuals, corporations, and non-profit organizations. Whether for a wedding or an anniversary dinner, a business seminar or holiday party, your guests will be charmed and impressed by the blending of art and architecture, history and modernity, beauty and function, culture and spirit that is so dramatically represented within our walls.
Rental customers have a choice of settings to match their type of event. Our flexible-use Auditorium can accommodate business meetings, formal dinners, lectures, seminars, and parties. The Auditorium has excellent musical acoustics and a resident Steinway baby grand piano, providing a marvelous arena for recitals and small audience performances. It’s also a perfect venue for yoga classes, meditation retreats, and other events requiring a quiet, enclosed space.
Our Russian Tea Room offers a charming setting for receptions or intimate dining set amid antique samovars, 19th century jail cells, and changeable colored ceiling lights. Smaller gatherings can be hosted in the Library, or on our elegant Roof Terrace. Both the Library and the Auditorium offer a full spectrum of audio-visual amenities, and caterers love our large prep kitchen adjacent to the Auditorium and Tea Room.
Weddings are especially unique at the Museum of Russian Icons! An aura of hushed contemplation perfectly complements a sacred ceremony, while the vibrant colors highlight the joy of the occasion. Guest may dine in our spacious Galleries, surrounded by centuries-old art, then dance in the sleekly modern Auditorium and Tea Room. The striking contrast of styles, colors, and atmospheres creates an experience you and your guests will remember for years to come.
Auditorium and Library rentals can be scheduled when the Museum is open to the public, or after-hours, when guests can also enjoy private access to the Galleries, Roof Terrace, and Russian Tea Room.
