FAQs

What does the rental fee 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, wedding cakes, or payment to vendors.
 

Is parking provided?

The Villa Terrace Decorative Arts 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 (link to list above) 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 Renaissance Garden?

We invite you to use the garden for your photography and for your guests to enjoy. The museum does not offer ceremonies or receptions in the Renaissance 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.
