Availability. The museum is open to the public Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, 12 to 5pm. Whenever possible, rentals must take place outside regular museum hours. We prefer not to close the museum, but can consider it under certain circumstances, at an additional rental fee.

In case of rain. If you’ve planned a garden ceremony and it rains, we can easily move to the Greek Revival Double Parlor. (Some just bring umbrellas.)
