We are pleased to announce that after over three months of closure and much thoughtful preparation, the Charles Allis Art Museum is now open to the general public. Our staff did not make this decision to reopen lightly, and we continue to follow the guidelines of health authorities closely to ensure our visitors and our staff can safely enjoy their visit.  Admission will be by online reservation only. Tickets may be purchased by visiting our Plan Your Visit page. More information on health and safety guidelines for your visit will be provided when registering. We look forward to seeing you again soon at the museum! 

What do the Rental Fees include?
The rental fee includes room rental and initial setup and use of tables and chairs.  On-site event staff is also provided to ensure your event runs smoothly from setup to cleanup. 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.

Is parking provided?
The Charles Allis Art Museum is located in an urban neighborhood and does not have onsite parking. Street parking is available where posted.  Please ask the Events Manager for parking options. Valet parking may be arranged with an outside vendor for a fee.

Am I required to use a caterer from your Approved Caterers and In-house Beverage Service?
Yes. The museum is a historic mansion filled with wonderful art. Each caterer on our list understands the particular rules and limitations of working in a museum. 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 English Garden?
We invite you to use the garden for your ceremony, photography and for your guests to enjoy. The museum does not offer receptions in the English 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? 
Beverage service is provided by our exclusive in-house beverage service. Package pricing and further information are available by contacting our Rentals Manager Megan Maikowski at 414-271-3656 ext. 2 or rentals@cavtmuseums.org
