Presentation equipment is available in either room and catering can be arranged as required.
The DCM meeting room
The meeting room is a light and airy space located at the centre of the Museum buildings. It is a rectangular room with windows along the long sides. One side looks into the main Museum concourse, while the other has a view over former station platform and train that now houses part of our collection. The room contains a digital projector and screen, and can comfortably seat 30 delegates around tables or 50 in rows.
John Richard Baker Exhibition Hall
The John Richard Baker Exhibition Hall is found towards the rear of the Museum. Although its principal purpose is as a venue for exhibitions, it is also an excellent space to host meetings, lectures and conferences. It is equipped with a projector screen (a digital projector is available if required) and seating for up to 90 people. Tables for meetings can also be provided.
