Herscher Hall • Guerin Pavilion
An Extraordinary Setting for an Unparalleled Experience
"The Water Buffalo Club was excited to be among the first to hold an event in the Skirball's new Guerin Pavilion. Our hundreds of guests marveled at the beauty of the grand ballroom and garden view, as well as the excellent cuisine and service. Our event was a smashing success, and we have already planned to hold our annual banquet there in 2014 and 2015."—Marty Nislick, Executive Director, Water Buffalo Club
With the opening of Herscher Hall and Guerin Pavilion, the Skirball Cultural Center adds 17,500 square feet of spectacular indoor and outdoor event space to its idyllic fifteen-acre campus designed by world-renowned architect Moshe Safdie.
The centerpiece of Guerin Pavilion, the over 9,000-square-foot ballroom is the ideal setting for large-scale conferences, symposia, community forums, corporate business gatherings, nonprofit galas and fundraisers, and social celebrations. Featuring majestic ceiling arches and sweeping vistas of a cascading tiered garden, the ballroom can seat up to 670 banquet guests—or be partitioned into multiple rooms for events that always feel intimate, comfortable, and welcoming.
Architecturally integrated with Guerin Pavilion, Herscher Hall provides additional reception areas, meeting rooms, and well-appointed suites to complement any ballroom function.
Herscher Hall and Guerin Pavilion are now open for event bookings.

"We booked our 2013 annual fundraising gala at the Guerin Pavilion while it was under construction, and when we finally saw the finished space, it was breathtaking! We have received so many compliments from guests on the beauty of the venue and the amazing staff who helped the evening run so smoothly. Thank you for making our gala a truly memorable experience. It is always a joy to work with the Skirball, and we look forward to working with them again next year."—Julie Maw, Marketing and Communications Director, Claris Health
"Our twins' b'nai mitzvah at the Guerin Pavilion was unforgettable! We have nothing but wonderful things to say about the Skirball staff, who helped make our event successful and stress-free. The beauty of the ballroom speaks for itself; the captains and servers were professional, efficient, and attentive; and the Skirball event specialist could not have been more supportive. We would highly recommend—and have been doing so—that our friends throw their events at this venue, as it is certainly one of the most gorgeous facilities in the Los Angeles area to date."—Shadi Tova Daneshrad
