    There are a variety of spaces available at Muse.


    • ENTRANCE FOYER: The entrance foyer is typically used by the person hiring out the Gallery to provide the full length of the building. It is a very beautiful oversized space with moveable couches for 12+ people. It makes a great breakout area for people holding workshops in the Gallery or even as more relaxed space to hold client or team meetings for group 10 - 20 people.
    • GALLERY: The Gallery enjoys the natural light from the atrium overlooking the indoor tree and picture windows at the back. There is a professional hanging system already installed and it makes for a very impressive canvas for a variety of works. This space is regularly hired for product launches, workshops, long table dinners for 50 people, private art openings with a difference, theatre rehearsal, performance, weekend retreats.


    • ROOM 1 On the Mezzanine level the consultant or private meeting room is $100 per half day. The room has been painted in serene still-life palms by acclaimed artist Anthony Lister and the balcony doors create a private and peaceful escape. This room has been used by Sennheiser for the global launch of new headphones, by holistic therapists, and for client meetings by creatives. 
    • ROOM 2/3 The treatment room which has an adjoining waiting room complete with balcony is unlike any other treatment room you will have seen. The atrium provides natural sunlight, with stunning plants and danish furniture for a contemporary feel with a beautifully restored fully automatic dentist chair with white lamb leather from leather upholstery specialists. Given the size of this combined area it is suitable for group bookings of 4 - 6 people at a time or for cosmetic training for up to 8 people. 


    We have a wonderful health and wellness community and are always interested in partnering up on workshops. If the theme is suitable for our clientele we can promote across our marketing channels and community so that your numbers increase. In the past we have worked this out on a commission basis. The commission changes case by case based on ticket price, capacity, current reach etc. It is always something which is mutually beneficial.
