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.
