CARNEGIE INSTITUTION OF WASHINGTON

Andrew Carnegie founded the Carnegie Institution of Washington in 1902 as an organization for scientific discovery. His intention was for institution to be home to exceptional individuals—men and women with imagination and extraordinary dedication capable of working at the cutting edge of their fields.

The Ballroom is perfect for a seated dinner accommodating up to 150 guests or a standing cocktail reception for up to 200 guests. The Ballroom and Rotunda are adjacent to one another and work well together, or as separate spaces. The Rotunda, with its Roman-style Corinthian columns and sophisticated system of skylights, is a classic space for a 100-person cocktail reception. The Ballroom and Rotunda are adjacent to one another and work well together, or as separate spaces.
