The Houston Museum of Fine Arts: A Different Way to Entertain

Carolyn Weiss Building

Today we’re taking a trip to the museum district to take a look at the Museum of Fine Arts (MFAH) where corporate functions of various sizes and weddings seeking a non-traditional path come to host events.

There are of course options that include a chapel or you can see it is made for banquet tables, but the MFAH offers unique elements like the Ideson Library we visited that can be really unexpected and also heighten the guest experience!

And for a good cause too. When you entertain in partnership with the MFAH you simultaneously support the Museum’s exhibitions, programs, and community outreach as well.

What I love about this venue:

The Museum of Fine Arts offers so much versatility with its array of spaces and weekly Happy Hour Thursdays that allow your group to gather weekly from 5 to 8 p.m. to enjoy refreshments and explore the museum with free admission and parking.

What’s included

The Museum of Fine Arts is a space that allows you to have unique event space and bring in your own vendors. Bringing in your own vendors means that you can make your event more your own as well which is always a plus!
