The Museum Grounds

The Commonwealth Museum Event and Conference Center is one of only a handful of waterfront properties in Boston. Your guests will enjoy our beautiful gardens and sweeping views of Boston Harbor.

Our seaside grounds are the ideal location for a tented clambake, cocktail reception, corporate family outing, rehearsal dinner, or a delightful banquet dinner. With about 10,800 square feet available for tenting and extra room to fun around, the Museum Grounds can host intimate parties and large affairs alike.

Seated banquet: 350
Cocktail reception: 1,050

Other outdoor events, such as picnics with games and stations, should be discussed with the Director of Special Events.

The museum grounds are available from April through October.
