What’s on the edge of the University of Minnesota’s campus, home to a woolly mammoth, and available for your next event? That would be the Bell Museum, opened in its brand-new space last year, with a variety of event options. Rentable spaces include the Think Tank, a 10-person conference room; the Nucleus, accommodating 60–80 guests; the Ruth and John Huss Observation Deck equipped with telescopes; the Whitney and Elizabeth MacMillan Planetarium with seating for 120; and Horizon Hall with space for 150 seated guests. Or rent out the entire building and invite up to 600 guests for a standing reception. All rental prices cover six hours, setup, built-in AV equipment, and dedicated event staff. Add-ons include additional spaces, guided museum tours, stargazing, a host of hands-on activities, and more. The museum also is fully accessible and includes parking, Wi-Fi, and a list of catering partners.
