About Event Rentals
The rental fee includes admission to the self-guided museum exhibition, “Delaware: One State, Many Stories” and use of the room(s) for your event. All chairs, tables, linens, decorations, etc. must be rented. There is no kitchen on site and choice of caterer is limited to Janssen’s Catering, the University & Whist Club, and the Wilmington Club. The first step is to check if the date for your event is available on the DHS calendar. Select Book Now to send a request, and we’ll reply as soon as possible. Thank you!
