Special Events & Museum Rentals

Encounter the past while celebrating your future in our historic venue.


Hold your special day in our uniquely picturesque Courtyard or our Atrium.


Leave the stuffy, drab meeting rooms behind. Make your meeting or special event extraordinary by hosting it in one of the remarkable spaces in the History Museum of Mobile, which is housed in the Old City Hall national landmark. The stately Hearin-Chandler Auditorium is ideal for workshops, board meetings, or small conferences.


Avoid the chaos of the lunch hour. Reserve your own private dining quarters in our Hearin-Chandler Auditorium, or uniquely picturesque Courtyard. If your group is looking to host a small morning or afternoon reception, these spaces can accommodate you as well.


The History Museum of Mobile is a perfect historical backdrop for the engagement, bridal, family, and wedding photos of your dreams! Please contact us to schedule a session. Due to the many events happening at the museum, walk-in photography sessions are not permitted and sessions must be scheduled in advance. Please contact the special events department to reserve a time. A $30 photography fee should be paid the day of your session.

We do not book private events during the Mardi Gras season.
