Old and new architecture meets dramatically on the Upper Deck, a remarkable space with high ceilings, which can be dressed in the style of your choice. The Upper Deck offers a modern, light and airy space, which can seat up to 550 for your wedding breakfast and can also accommodate a dance floor and DJ providing a single location for dinner and dancing.

Pre-dinner drinks can be enjoyed on the Streets in Neptune Court where your guests can view the Museum’s varied exhibits.
