Evening Social Events
The recently renovated auditorium is a modern and elegant space for dinners or cocktail receptions with a world of history just steps away. The venue can host up to 170 guests for a seated dinner with a dance area, or 300 for a standing reception.
One of the most exceptional spaces in Tucson, guests are surrounded on three sides by priceless artifacts from Arizona history, including Wyatt Earp’s six-shooter, Geronimo’s rifle and a Spanish Colonial silver collection. The venue can hold 120 guests for a seated dinner or 175 for a cocktail reception, with access from the courtyard and lobby.
Inside the impressive reconstructed façade of the historic San Agustín Church lies the 1,400 sq. ft. lobby of the museum. With its original Joshler interior, the lobby is expansive enough for receptions of 150, or a seated affair of 100
The courtyard is an open-air venue featuring a small stream, authentic front porches from Tucson homes of the 1800s, and abundant Territorial Era flowers. The courtyard is another great space for serving cocktails or may serve as a receiving area for the Treasures Gallery.
