Event Policies

  • Event hours must be before or after the museum is open to the public, 7–9 a.m. or after 5 p.m. Event rentals are based on a 4 hour rental rate. For evening events, additional time may be added to extend the event at a pro-rated rate.
  • The Children’s Museum of the Upstate requires security for all after hours private rentals. Security is charged at a rate of $30/officer/hour. The number of officers present will be determined by the Special Events Coordinator and is based upon your attendance and type of event.
  • Clients are not required to use a specific caterer, but all catering must be approved through the Special Events Coordinator.
  • Alcohol is allowed at private after hour events at the approval of the Special Events Coordinator.
  • Events are not confirmed on the museum’s calendar until we receive signed copies of the facility rental contract and a 50 percent deposit.
  • Events must be booked at least one month in advance.
