The Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD) showcases the history, art, and cultural richness that resulted from the dispersal of Africans throughout the world. Located within the first three floors of the five-star St. Regis Tower complex, MoAD is a unique place to host your event. Your guests are free to explore MoAD’s intriguing and provocative exhibitions either on their own or with a docent-led tour.
MoAD is located in the heart of the Yerba Buena district, an exciting cultural corridor with multiple museums and other cultural institutions, world-class restaurants, and luxury hotels. It is within walking distance of the Moscone Center, accessible via BART and MUNI, and located near multiple parking garages. Valet parking is available through the St. Regis Hotel.
The museum has two main event spaces: the MoAD Salon and the Education Center. Both event spaces have in-house audio-visual and wireless Internet capabilities. These spaces are available for gatherings of any sort, including receptions, lectures, weddings, interviews, film screenings, and meetings.
We invite you to become a part of the MoAD story. Your rental fees will help build our youth curriculum and programs; support our public education programs; and fund our distinctive exhibitions.
