FAQs

HOW MANY GUESTS CAN WE HAVE AT A BIRTHDAY PARTY?

Birthday parties are limited to 49 people, and are hosted in a roped-off area of the Enginehouse. Tables and chairs are set up for the number of people you specify in advance. We also set up a serving table for lunch or snacks, and, of course, birthday cake.

CAN I BRING FOOD/CATERING?

Yes! We have an open catering policy, meaning you can choose any caterer or bring in your own prepared food. We do not have a catering kitchen – all food must arrive ready to serve.

CAN I HAVE A LIVE BAND/ENTERTAINMENT?

Yes. Please call the office to discuss the setup and any restrictions. Birthday parties are offered during open hours for the museum. Any live music or entertainment needs to keep this in mind and be respectful to our other guests.

CAN I BRING ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES?

Yes. You will be required to have event insurance and to follow all OLCC rules.

CAN I BRING DECORATIONS?

Yes. The birthday party area is not an enclosed space – table decorations and balloons work best. Contact us if you have any questions.

CAN I BRING A PHOTOGRAPHER?

Yes. We love having our photo taken – and love it even more when the photos are shared on our social media!
