Kaleideum Rentals

We can put together special events for you such as a scavenger hunt for adults, children, or both, as well as provide a list of recommended caterers.

The per hour charge begins at the time setup begins (not at the time guests arrive.) We ask that the caterer to clean up after food service, but do not expect them to clean floors and bathrooms. Availability of galleries is dependent on current exhibition. Some restrictions apply. All fees are subject to change.

If your organization has 501c3 status, we offer a discount for non-profits.
