RENT THE ALLIS - FAQS

What do the Rental Fees include?
The rental fee includes room rental and initial set up and use of tables and chairs.Ā  On-site event staff is also provided to ensure your event runs smoothly from set up to breakdown. Museum staff members do not handle or set up any rented or personal items brought in such as flower arrangements, sound systems, guest books, party favors, programs, food, beverages, wedding cakes, or payment to vendors, etc.

Is parking provided?
Both Museums are located in urban neighborhoods that provide street parking.  Please ask the Events Manager for parking options.  Valet parking may be arranged for either location.

Am I required to use a caterer from your Approved Caterers & Bartenders List?
Yes. The Museums are delicate facilities and each caterer on our list understands the particular rules and limitations that are required of them. We have a very extensive list of some of the best caterers in the city and we trust that any one of them will make your event a memorable one.

Can I have my event in the Renaissance Garden?
We invite you to use the garden for your photography and for your guests to enjoy. The museum does not offer ceremonies or receptions in the Renaissance Garden.

Will you hold a date for me?
A date is only confirmed with a signed contract and a deposit. Deposits are non-refundable.

What are your beverage service policies?
Bar service is provided by our exclusive in-house beverage service. Package pricing and further information is available from our Beverage Manager.

Please contact the event manager for more information or to make an appointment to view our venues.
