Joshua D L. booked an alumni event for 50 people
Alex and Jeff were extremely helpful in making this event happen. The space is beautiful inside and it very well suited for sit-down events of 40-50 people. So many guests complimented the interior of the space and considered it a diamond in the rough. My only issue as someone coming from out of state, was that I had no idea how the location of the venue would negatively impact the experience and attendance of my guests. There was very little parking and the venue is in the heart of the tenderloin of which I did not realize how dangerous it was. I was personally fine, but my guests were very uncomfortable.
Rheanna B. booked a rehearsal dinner for 100 people
The Museum was PERFECT for our casual rehearsal dinner and party. The blank slate that the space offers allowed us to do whatever we wanted when it came to food, booze, and floor plan. Jean was extremely helpful and professional. I wouldn't change a thing!

Jean and the Museum were most welcoming and accommodating. They were very very gracious when we had to run a little late and were very pleasant to work with. The space is wonderful for an intimate event and the exhibits are well done and very interesting! Would absolutely recommend them.

Nicole B. booked an event for 2 people
The space was great and the staff was wonderful to work with. My only concern is with the neighborhood. Our guests were a bit weary of the area, and we think it affected attendance.

Great place with a soul. Ideal for a team offsite where you want people to change environments. Catering was good too and people lovely.
Thank you, we're on it!
