Bookings & Deposits

In order to secure your special day, we require a deposit of 50% of the venue fee. Dates are booked on a first-come, first-serve basis. This deposit is nonrefundable and must be paid before we can guarantee a specific date. The remaining balance must be paid in full 60 days prior to the event date.

We also require a damage deposit of $1000, which is due on day of booking via credit card. (Will only be charged if damage occurs) Museum staff will inspect the property the day following the event. The cost to repair any damage to the property will be deducted from the damage deposit.

The Bryan Museum provides private security ($35/hour for every 100 guests) and bar staff ($175/event; TABC certified).

The Galveston Police Department requires 1 officer to be present for every event ($40/hour for every 100 guests). The Bryan Museum must make these arrangements for you.
