What are the costs of renting the venue?
Rental prices are quoted upon request and based on spaces used for the event. Additionally, in-house production costs, such as security, set-up, and breakdown crews, are itemized for each event and include all labor necessary to make your event a success.
How do I hold a date?
The desired date of your event can be placed on hold. Once the client confirms the event, the Intrepid Museum will provide a contract. A 50% deposit of the total fee is required. Deposits are non-refundable.
Is insurance required for events?
Insurance is required for each event. Specific insurance requirements are listed in the special event contract.
What time can my event start and end?
