...where every event is a work of art!

The Michael C. Carlos Museum offers the most elegant atmospheres available in Atlanta for wedding receptions, rehearsal dinners, Bar and Bat Mitzvah celebrations, corporate meetings, and special events. With four different rental space options, we can accommodate events of any size for our members and their event needs.

 
Imagine your next special event in the Carlos Museum Reception Hall set amid the award-winning architecture of Michael Graves, including floor-to-ceiling windows, chandelier lighting, state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment, and the classic elegance of our Steinway grand piano. The Carlos Museum offers the perfect space to make any event a unique and memorable experience.
 
The rental fee includes security, tables, chairs, set up, breakdown, on-site event supervision, and free parking (after 5 p.m. and on the weekends). The Museum's galleries can be added to any facility rental. Alcohol is permitted and must be provided by the event sponsor. There are no fees associated with the alcohol, but a preferred caterer must provide all bartending services. Rental of any of our elegant spaces is a privilege of membership. Membership information is available elsewhere on this website.
