The Grand Foyer is not only a stately marble hall with towering 40-foot ceilings, twin half domes, marble columns, travertine floors and oversized brass chandeliers, but also home to the Museum's iconic "Dueling Dinosaurs." The Dinos — complete skeletons of a Tyrannosaurus Rex and Triceratops locked in battle — have presided not only over cocktail receptions and corporate holiday parties, but numerous wedding ceremonies. Flanked on each side by the Museum's Mammal Halls, the Grand Foyer is the ultimate starting point for any event at the Natural History Museum.
