A night at the museum: What to know about using museum venues

Historic & Cultural Venues, Special Event Venues

When you think of where to host your next event, a museum may not be on your radar, but in fact, these venues incorporate both form and function and deliver memorable experiences.

Think of all the rooms that most museums usually have: an auditorium, exhibit halls, grand foyers, and more.  With a little creativity, museums can definitely be transformed into unique meeting and social spaces.

For example, the Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh offer some of the most beautiful architecture in the Steel City.  Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion, planning a corporate function or hosting a meeting for your group, the family of the Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh offers the perfect setting for almost any gathering.

At the Andy Warhol Museum, guests can mingle beside Jackie Kennedy, Elvis Presley, and Marilyn Monroe (Ok…. Just their portraits). Where else can you create such a unique experience?

When inquiring about booking a museum, be sure to ask what parts of the museum your guests can enjoy and  if there will be other visitors to the museum at the same time.

In the end, these venues pack a lot of personality, so less is more for your decor.  Let your museum venue do the talking.  Sit back. Enjoy your guests. And take in the creative wonders found at museum venues.
