The Grand Foyer serves as a lobby for the Concert Hall, Opera House, and the Eisenhower Theater and is located on the river side of the Kennedy Center. It is 60 feet high and 630 feet long, making it one of the largest rooms in the world. If the Washington Monument were laid down on its side inside the Foyer, there would still be 75 feet to spare. At the center of the lengthy hall, is the famous bronze bust of President John F. Kennedy by American sculptor Robert Berks. The Foyer can be entered from the Hall of States, the Hall of Nations, or the River Terrace.
Building opens daily at 10 a.m.
