Guest Count: Your guest count is due 3 days before your event and your set up is due when you sign the rental agreement or no later than 30 days before your event.
Catering: The museum does NOT provide food or beverages. However, you can bring your own food or hire the caterer of your choice. Food is allowed in every room we rent. We do ask that you & your guests be very careful of spills on our carpets. Or you will accrue a $50 carpet cleaning fee.
If you want access to our kitchen there is a flat fee of $50. The kitchen has a refrigerator, freezer, sink, microwave and stove top (no oven use).
Tables / Chairs / Misc.
If you are going to charge your guests for alcohol, you must have a Gathering Permit. To obtain a permit, contact:
Office of the Alcoholic Beverage Control Commissioner
Carvel State Office Building
820 French Street
Wilmington, DE 19801
You do NOT need a gathering permit if you are not charging for alcohol.
A/V and Internet
A/V set-ups - The museum does not furnish a/v equipment. You will need to supply your own microphone, speakers, projectors, etc.
WiFi - You will need to bring a "hot spot device" if you require internet access for your event.
Clean up after your event consists of clearing all tables & the floor of trash
and decorations. For your convenience, you will be supplied trash cans and
liners for your event and clean up purposes. We suggest a minimum of 1 hour
for clean-up. The more decorations you bring, the longer it will take. It will also
take longer if you did not hire a caterer. If you run past your designated end
time, there is a $25 fee for every 30 minutes you run over so please recruit
enough "clean up" helpers.
