Museum Rental

Rent the Museum

If you love history and you want a unique place for your gathering you found it. No matter what you love you will find the museum the most scenic and interesting place for your next party, business meeting, card club, or any event. While the indoor space is cozy and intimate, the sprawling lawn and garden area has a lot to offer.

The vast lawn is entirely fenced and features an easy entrance, bocce ball courts and a 1949 Pullman railcar that serves as a stunning backdrop. The fully restored railcar (inside and out) is the only one of its kind in the area and can also be used for much smaller groups or included in your museum building and grounds rental.

  • What is the cost to rent the Museum?
    The museum and railcar are available for rental for the cost of $100 an hour. A non-refundable deposit equal to half of the total cost is due with the signed rental contract. Balance due day of the event.

  • How many guests does the Museum accommodate?
    The museum interior can host up to 50 people. Our 1949 renovated Pullman railcar can comfortably seat 20 people. The Herdic Museum also boasts a beautiful and expansive lawn with 2 Bocce Ball Courts. It’s the perfect space to accommodate tents or canopies, for an outdoor event. The museum also has ample parking in surrounding lots.

  • Can food and alcohol be served inside the Museum?
    Yes, food and alcohol are permitted in both the Museum and the railcar if provided by a caterer.
