Facility Rental

Ingram Planetarium and the Museum of Coastal Carolina are available for rental. Events may begin during or after regular business hours based on the facility’s programming schedule and at the discretion of the Executive Director. Both the Museum and the Planetarium are smoke-free facilities.

For Museum rental, you can rent only the Hayden O’Neil Learning Center (HOLC) or you can rent the HOLC plus the rest of the Museum. With the latter option, your guests can stroll through the Museum’s galleries and enjoy the Museum’s collections.

The Museum can accommodate the following:

147 people — standing

105 people — chairs only

49 people — tables & chairs

570 — strolling the entire venue

Rectangular tables, bistro tables, and folding chairs are available for your use. Renters are responsible for set-up and clean-up, so your rental time-frame should include time to set up prior to the event and time to clean up after the event.

Food and drinks are allowed. If alcohol will be served, the renter must purchase liquor liability insurance or use a caterer that has liquor liability insurance.

The Museum’s paved parking area is also available for rental for events that are not held at the Museum but for which additional parking is needed.
