Baker Hall

While Baker Hall is seen regularly as our Visitors Center during normal business hours, the hall is transformed into a spectacular, non-traditional wedding reception location that is sure to please any crowd. Baker Hall accommodates up to 150 people for a seated dinner and up to 300 for a standing cocktail reception. As the hall does double duty as our Visitor’s Center, it is not available until after 6pm.

The patio area of Baker Hall is the ideal ceremony site for a Baker Hall reception. Overlooking the Perennial Garden and Boat Basin, the patio area is just right for up to 150 guests. While not offered on it’s own, this patio complements a reception in Baker Hall.
