Where you choose to host your event depends on the type of function you are planning. The Allen County Museum offers a unique environment immersed in history and antiques. But for this reason, it is also vulnerable. Our priority is the long-term preservation of the historical objects that have been entrusted to our care. our mission guides our decisions about what events are best suited for the Museum.
TYPES OF EVENTS
Events may include corporate events, dinners, ceremonies, lectures, and private receptions. The Museum/Historical Society is unable to accommodate religious events, weddings, wedding receptions, parties, or any private function requiring an entrance or admission fee. We reserve the right to accept or reject any proposed function on a case-by-case basis.
The mission of the Allen County Historical Society is to collect, preserve, and interpret the history of Allen County and Ohio, as well as other areas of interest that will benefit the public served.
Facilities are offered for rent to serve the needs of the community, attract new audience, and raise funds in support of the Historical Society’s programs and events.
GALLERIES AND EXHIBITS
The Allen County Historical Society has one of the finest historical collections in the state. We have an expectation that all members, and their guests, will demonstrate the utmost respect for the collections and exhibits housed within the Museum. Groups may not set up tables and chairs in gallery spaces when the Museum is open to the public. No food or drink is permitted in gallery spaces.
