An antechamber (also known as an anteroom or ante-room) is a smaller room or vestibule serving as an entryway into a larger one. The word is formed of the Latin ante camera, meaning "room before".

In some cases, an antechamber provides a space for a host to prepare or conduct private business away from a larger party or congregation. In a theme park, an antechamber may be used to tell guests about a ride before they experience it.

Famous quotes containing the word antechamber:

    In this world, which is so plainly the antechamber of another, there are no happy men. The true division of humanity is between those who live in light and those who live in darkness. Our aim must be to diminish the number of the latter and increase the number of the former. That is why we demand education and knowledge.
    Victor Hugo (1802–1885)
