Due to the nature of our historical building and the artifact housed within it, we must impose some restrictions on decoration for the event. Live plants and flowers must be removed at the end of the event. No flames or candles of any type or design are allowed, but LED flameless candles are permitted. No taping or tacking on walls, ceilings, or surfaces in any of the rooms. Confetti and glitter are not allowed on the tables. We encourage you to discuss your vision for the event so we can offer suggestions for museum friendly decorating ideas.
A $150.00 deposit (refundable/applied to balance due) is required to hold your date and must accompany the signed rental agreement. Failure to clean the kitchen or remove trash will result in loss of your security deposit.
