Museums have become the unlikely stars of event organisation. They’re unique, luxurious, and have a lot more to offer than a meeting room in a hotel. For something a little more eclectic, yet still formal, museums tick all of the right boxes. This is exactly why event managers have grown to love them and they have had a massive surge in popularity in recent years. If you’ve never considered it before, then a museum may be just the venue that you’ve been looking for.
The Benefits of Hosting an Event in a Museum
There are lots of positives to hosting an event in a museum. Whether it’s a book launch or a conference, and AGM or even a wedding reception, there is a place in a museum for everything. Most have rooms made especially for lectures or talks that can be adapted to suit any purpose and you’ll find that museum staff are more than willing to help you with whatever you need in order for everything to run smoothly.
A Chance to Engage With Culture
If you are looking for somewhere special to hold a meeting, then a museum brings the wow factors in spades. Where else can you browse artefacts and paintings during your lunch break? If you have anyone coming in from overseas, then giving them a chance to see and immerse themselves in some local culture will be greatly appreciated by everyone. It should go without saying that a museum provides the perfect cultural backdrop for any type of arts event.
Helps Bring Ideas Forward
It’s well known that being in a creative space helps when brainstorming and strategy planning. What better creative space is there than that of a museum? If your team can immerse themselves in all of the discoveries that surround them, then they are much more likely to come up with their own. The room that you hire out will be yours to use and so you can work together in whatever way that you need to come up with new ideas and ways to implement them. This also makes a museum the perfect venue to bring in an outside facilitator.
Formal and Informal
A museum is a step up from a hotel conference room, but it they can be used to create any vibe that you need. It can be formal or informal which is why they are such good venues for a wide variety of events. Depending on which part of the building you are using for your event, you can host either a kid’s party or a drinks reception. With so many rooms in museum venues for hire in London, there’s one for every event.
If an event is being held in a museum, them people are going to want to go to it. The novelty of it and curiosity will draw everyone in. Museums are designed specifically to be as welcoming as possible, meaning that people aren’t going to be as tentative when turning up as it is a public building. Having your event in a museum guarantees that you’ll get a crowd of interested people turning up to see what it’s all about. A museum is always seen as somewhere fancy so no matter how informal your event, it’s a venue that people just can’t say no to.
The majority of museums are all stunning in their own unique way. Many have interesting architecture that is unlike any other building in the city and this continues internally. With features designed to catch your eye alongside all of the artwork on and displays a museum really is a venue that makes you stare. This only adds to its prestige and so anyone attending an event there will feel like they’ve just become a member of a very exclusive club.
What You Need to Remember When Hiring a Museum Venue
You might have decided that a museum is the venue you need for your next event, but don’t rush in too quickly! There are a number of things that you need to consider before making a booking.
Handle With Care
Museums are a prestigious venue – there’s no doubt about that. Yet with so many precious items on the walls and on display, you will have to follow a strict set of rules. Each museum is different, and they will let you know exactly what to expect but particularly with any equipment that is needed, you’ll need to take a lot of care not to damage anything.
Food and Drink Policy
Following on from this, food and drink may not be allowed in the same room as where you are hosting your event, particularly if it is near some of the exhibits. This will mean getting everyone to leave their drinks at the door and moving rooms if there is food served.
It’s a Public Building
While a museum may be happy for you to cordon off part of an exhibition for your event, it’s likely that this will only take place after hours. A museum’s first priority is the general public that it caters for, and no event is going to be able to change that. This will mean that you’ll need to stick to sanctioned rooms during the day, but that you might be able to move somewhere else in the evening.
No matter what type of event you want to host, a museum is sure to be a venue that you’ll want to consider. They have far more in terms of versatility than you might think at first, which is why they are so ideal for a full range of different activities. People will be excited to go to your event simply because of its location – and promotion like that is really hard to come by. So why not inject a little culture into your next event by hosting it in a museum?
