Memorial Hall: A gorgeous large event space

One of the most unique event spaces in Minneapolis, Memorial Hall is a gorgeous room for wedding receptions, fundraisers, galas, and holiday parties. It has a reception capacity of 800 people, and theater seating and dinner capacities of 500 people. With superior built-in AV including 2 large screens, the McNamara Alumni Center’s Memorial Hall is a great room for a conference keynote address and large meeting. Memorial Hall also is a safe setting to host in-person, virtual and hybrid meetings and events during Covid. Memorial Hall’s unique architecture was featured in an MTV music video, a national car commercial and helped earn a spot in the Top 50 Places to Get Married in the U.S. by Brides magazine!
