A GREAT VENUE...
The Museum has several areas suitable for a range of various small functions, meetings or events.
The Museum interior itself has enough space for up to 40 people (seated with tables) which is ideal for morning teas, light lunches, book launches, speeches, small wedding receptions, dedications, funeral receptions, meetings and more. There is a great nautical atmosphere within the museum as you sit surrounded by historical artefacts and displays.
The Gil Allbutt Boat Shed is a stand alone larger space with an entirely different atmosphere and is suitable for larger groups, being able to seat up to 100 people (seats only). This space has been used for Jazz performances, speeches, weddings, funerals, small conventions, meetings, barbeques, and presentation nights.
