Private Events


The Lawson Center is the site of many celebrations.  In addition, we  offer an unusual venue for business meetings and luncheons.

The Lawson Center 2nd floor and 3 deck levels can be rented by museum members for private parties on an as-available basis.

The beautiful board room is available for small meetings and the 2nd floor can be rented for larger business or civic organization meetings.

To request an event booking or to have a tour of the facilities, please contact our Event Co-ordinator,  Rae Lynn DeAngelo
