Museum Event Staff
The Museum provides two employees for each event for assistance. Staff assists with greeting visitors, providing parking validation, providing gift shop assistance and coordinating with caterers and vendors throughout the night. To enhance your guests’ experience, Museum staff will be available to informally interpret the art and artifact collections, exhibitions, and the history of the building.
All approved vendors have been selected for their high standards and quality of service to use our historic space. Additional vendors may be considered pending alignment with the International Museum of Surgical Science’s Facility Use Guidelines and Policies. See Approved Vendors for more information.
The Museum has two indoor ramps and an elevator. A wheelchair accessible entrance is located on the north side of the building.
Guest parking is not available. Street parking is extremely limited. The Museum validates parking for several nearby public parking lots which provide guests with an hourly discount. See Directions & Parking for more information. Hiring shuttle service or valet is recommended.
Decorations and Candles
Décor and candles can be added to any event with Museum approval. Open flames are not permitted in the Museum. Votive candles are acceptable for use on tables and fireplace mantles. Smoking is not allowed within 15 feet of the building.
