The Museum of Art and Archaeology welcomes the opportunity to make its galleries, artwork and cultural treasures available to groups and individuals who might wish to rent the Museum for special events. The Museum is available for groups as small as five or as large as 100.

The Cast Gallery (image above) on the first floor of the Museum is available for receptions. Guests will enjoy being surrounded by plaster reproductions of classical sculpture while enjoying a catered buffet of beverages and hors d’oeuvres. The Cast Gallery may be rented for a nominal fee of $200 for non-University of Missouri groups and $100 for University of Missouri groups.

This Hall holds up to 116 individuals and is designed in a stepped theatre style with a stage. A stationary podium is located on the stage at the front of the Hall and is equipped with a computer, DVD player, VCR, and remote access to a sound system and digital projector. This room is usually available for reservation after 5 pm and there is no charge for the use of this room.
