Many of the Museum's public areas can be rented for lectures, performances, receptions, dinners, conferences, and private tours. Reservations can be made as early as one year in advance. Five different rental configurations are possible, and prices vary by areas rented, sponsoring organizations, length of rental, and number of Museum staff required.
The Museum does not have meeting rooms other than the auditorium. Because the only area available for food service is the Museum lobby, events involving food are only possible during hours that the Museum is closed to the public.
