RENTING THE MUSEUM IS CURRENTLY FOR
Our hearts may be large, but our museum is small. We request that groups with more than 6 children consider renting the museum. The museum can be rented by members only. Per our bylaws, you must be a member for one month and complete orientation before a party can be booked.
Our recommended limit for rentals is 22 persons. To accommodate renters, we have several tables, 15 adult chairs, seating for 14 kids, a refrigerator, microwave, bathroom, water fountain, and a coffee/tea brewer. A collapsible rain shelter is also available for outside use. The surrounding park has a playground, 3 picnic tables, tennis court, and a grill. PLEASE NOTE: the park, playground, tennis court, and grill belong to the City of Augusta. We cannot guarantee that the park will not be occupied by other parties or playground-goers as it is a public facility that cannot be rented out. The City of Augusta manages the park and maintains the grounds.
Our guidelines for rentals are as follows:
Museum rental is a flat rate of $35.
Renters need to have completed at least two shifts before the date of the rental. This is to ensure that the member has enough experience and familiarity with the museum. Due to COVID, you must be a member for at least a month and complete orientation before the date of the rental.
There should be at least one parent for every three children present.
The maximum duration for a rental is 3 hours.
The suggested maximum number of persons (adults and children) in a rental party is 22. More than this and the museum gets noisy and crowded.
Renters are expected to clean up and leave the museum in an organized state.
