Facility Rentals

The Museum offers a variety of exciting options, all under one roof. From the state of the art Giant Screen Theater to the elegant charm of the Mansion, we can provide the surroundings to make your event a truly unique experience.

During Phase 2, only groups of 50 or less are allowed. We can promise facilities sophisticated and intimate, exotic and educational. Your guests can experience everything the Museum has to offer - from small weddings and formal parties in the Mansion to dinner and a movie in the Giant Screen Theater, or learning about our Solar System at the AutoZone Dome at the Sharpe Planetarium.

The Museum has so much more to offer than just a unique setting. Our full time Special Events Coordinator will help you create a special event. Adding the extra touches to make planning your event virtually stress free.

If you are interested in meeting space, the Museum has classrooms perfect for seminars or Board meetings. For larger groups, there is the Mansion Theater that seats up to 200 (Phase 2 capacity restrictions apply).

Whatever the size of your group or the theme of your function, the Museum has the facilities and experience to meet all of your needs.
