Visiting

Host Your Event

Make memories at the Columbus Museum of Art. Your Columbus wedding, cocktail reception, luncheon, dinner, or business meeting becomes a unique event within the art of the museum. Our goal is to make your event memorable and remarkable!

Our largest space is the elegant Derby Court, a dramatically sky-lit interior garden space enhanced by the sculpture of Dale Chihuly. The spectacular renovation of historic Derby Court makes it Columbus’ finest venue for outstanding celebrations. For more intimate gatherings, the Forum includes artwork from the Museum’s collection in a gallery setting. This room is perfect for luncheons, dinners, and smaller meetings. The Cardinal Health Auditorium seats 288 guests and is equipped with state-of-the-art audio and projection equipment for business presentations or musical performances featuring our Steinway grand piano.

Planning your event at the Columbus Museum of Art is an excellent way to introduce your guests to the wonderful collections and exciting programs offered at the Museum. We encourage you to include time during your event for guests to view current exhibitions. Special tours or experiences in the galleries can be arranged for additional fees. Revenue generated by hosting an event at the Museum benefits the annual operating fund of the Museum.

We are proud to announce that Columbus Museum of Art has been rated by local brides and voted The Knot Best of Weddings 2013 Pick.
