The Museum has an inventory of certain tables and chairs in stock which comes free with the rental of any room. Most small events should be able to be accommodated with the Museum's inventory of tables and chairs.
However, if another event running concurrently has already claimed use of the Museum's inventory, you have a large event, and/or you have specific requests, the Museum may have to rent extra tables or chairs. Advance notice of what you need must be given to the Museum. The Museum will then bill the renter for the cost of the rented tables or chairs used. Only tables and chairs owned by, or rented through, the Museum can be used for safety assurances.
The Museum has a number of options for you to add to the rental to help you out with your event. Let us know ahead of time what you might need from the list below to put on your event.
