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.

Should an event need to be rescheduled an administrative cost of $1,000.00 will be assessed. All rescheduling will be on a case-by-case basis and the new date will be mutually agreed upon by both parties. The rescheduled dates will be within the following year and on the exact same day of the week. Should there be no available dates within that timeframe then the next viable month would be put in place. All balances must be paid based on the original dates of the original 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 ($175 for every 100 guests) and bar staff ($175/event; TABC certified).

The Galveston Police Department requires 1 officer to be present for every event ($160 for every 100 guests). The Bryan Museum must make these arrangements for you.
