As an added amenity, we also offer private gallery viewings for all indoor space rentals.
The Great Hall is a dramatic and elegant venue featuring soaring, pine-beamed ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows with beautiful views of Crystal Bridges' upper pond. The Great Hall may be rented in conjunction with the south lobby or alone.
Eleven — Crystal Bridges’ welcoming restaurant space — offers high-arching, pine-beamed ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows with gorgeous views of the entire Crystal Bridges campus. Rental of Eleven includes the museum’s main lobby.
This includes exclusive use of both the Great Hall and Eleven, Walker Landing, and both the south and main lobbies, as well as access to all of the museum’s permanent collection galleries and the Temporary Exhibition Gallery.
Modern Art Gallery
Enjoy an intimate gathering on the Modern Art Gallery bridge featuring floor-to-ceiling glass windows with views of Ozark nature on each side while Dale Chihuly’s Azure Icicle Chandelier hangs overhead.
The museum offers three Landing Suites that make excellent meeting and reception spaces for smaller groups. These rooms are named after American artists whose work can be seen in our collection—Albers, Bellows, Cassatt. The Landing Suites are located on the lower level of the museum, and open onto Walker Landing. These spaces may be rented separately or together. The Bellows and Cassatt rooms can be combined to make one larger room.
The museum’s Seminar Room is a private, glass-walled room located off the corridor that leads from the main lobby to the Temporary Exhibitions Gallery and Great Hall.
Located in the Crystal Bridges Library, the Board Room features beautiful views of the museum’s upper pond and surrounding forest. The room is equipped with a drop-down screen and input for your laptop. A private restroom is adjacent.
Located north of the museum, the North Forest offers a chance to become fully immersed in the natural flora and fauna of the Ozark forest that surrounds Crystal Bridges. Dance in the trees and enjoy sculptures along the trail.
Frank Lloyd Wright House Lawn
Set off from the South Lawn by a line of trees and native plants, and flanked on one side by a stacked-stone wall and the Ozark forest, this space has a private feel and of course, features Frank Lloyd Wright’s beautiful Bachman-Wilson House as its central focal point. Please note: the Bachman-Wilson House is not available for rental, and is not opened for private events.
This paved venue overlooks the museum’s lower pond and features a circular waterfront amphitheater.
The South Lawn
Located at the south entrance to Crystal Bridges, the South Lawn is a grassy area adjacent to Crystal Spring and features Robert Indiana’s iconic LOVE sculpture. Tents can be erected to provide shade or weather coverage. The South Lawn may be rented as a stand-alone venue or combined with rental of the Great Hall.
Tulip Tree Shelter
The Tulip Tree Shelter was originally a 1:3 scale model of Crystal Bridges’ roof structure that was built to test the design prior to construction of the museum. It is located just off the Tulip Tree Trail.
North Forest Shelter
Built of native stone and wood, the North Forest Shelter is located north east of the museum, near the North Forest trailhead.
Small weddings are permitted on Crystal Bridges’ trails and grounds, subject to approval and contract by the Crystal Bridges Special Events office. These permits are for brief (under 30 minutes) ceremonies with no more than 10 people. Use of our trail shelters or other facilities is not included. Larger parties, or those wishing to use the Tulip Tree or North Forest Trail Shelters, should contact the Special Events office to reserve facility space. There is a $50 fee for the permit, which should be requested at least 72 hours prior to the event.
