Private Events

Make your next celebration, sales presentation, or special event stand out.

MMoCA's stunning architectural spaces are available to corporate clients and others through the MMoCA Private Events program.

The museum's striking spaces are available to corporate and other clients through the MMoCA Private Events program.

The lecture hall, which seats 230, is a great spot for presentations, film screenings, staff retreats, annual meetings, and more. The adjoining lobby makes a wonderful venue for receptions and celebrations of all kinds. Events occurring during the warmer months may take place in the MMoCA rooftop sculpture garden, which offers outdoor artworks and a bird’s-eye view of the busy State Street pedestrian mall.

In addition to offering guests the chance to celebrate in one of the Midwest’s most noteworthy buildings, guests at all MMoCA Private Events are invited to experience the museum’s world-class exhibitions, either independently or during guided tours.
