Museum Rentals

The Andy Warhol Museum offers an intriguing and distinctive space for social and corporate functions. Mingle with the celebrities on view at your next event.

The special events staff is here to help you create a remarkable, memorable event. Whether you are planning an informal dinner for 20, a black-tie awards ceremony for 100, or a cocktail reception for 200, we offer an all-inclusive planning experience. Rentals include event furniture, audio visual, and staffing, and we work with one exclusive catering company to create the perfect menu.

The museum’s entrance space is available for a 120-person seated event or a 200-person cocktail reception. The Warhol theater is available to host business meetings, lectures, wedding ceremonies, or symposia. Options to add gallery floors, guided tours, and studio activities to your event are available.

As I always say, one’s company, two’s a crowd, three’s a party.
