Rentals are subject to museum and staffing availability, with priority given to events that fit with the museum’s biodiversity mission. At this time we are unable to host events such as weddings and private parties. Please note that we are a self-serve facility. We do not offer catering, furnishings and decor, AV support etc.

Important update April 2023: A significant expansion to the Beaty Biodiversity Research Center, located next to the museum, will be happening this spring. The construction period starts in April 2023 and the conclusion will be in spring 2025. As with any major construction project, we anticipate delays and unforeseen circumstances – we may need to cancel or change our bookings and rentals at short notice. We thank you for your patience as we undergo this exciting transformation! Read more about the Beaty Biodiversity Research Center Expansion Project here.
