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, 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 event for photography and for 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 at (414) 867-3196 or rentals@cavtmuseums.org.
