Corporate & Private Events

The grand architecture of the Old Red Museum is sure to make a great impression. From the moment your guests arrive they will take pleasure in this unique and historic building. Grand entryways made of marble and stone along with the soaring four-story staircase welcome your friends, clients and co-workers. Just as Old Red once served as the center of Dallas County life and government, the doors are again open to offer this one of a kind location as the perfect setting for your corporate or private event.

The Great Hall features refined architectural amenities, including 20-foot ceilings, graceful arches, chandeliers and traditional Victorian color schemes making it the ideal setting for your dinner, meeting, reception or social gathering. This spacious area can accommodate up to 300 (seated) or 400 (standing) guests with ample space for buffets and dance floors.

Just down the hall, there are two additional rooms for smaller events or meetings. The Hatton W. Sumners Courtroom is fully restored to its original 1892 elegance and can hold up to 120 guests. For a more traditional event, the Restoration Room can hold a theater-style meeting for 220 guests or a seated meal for up to 120 guests. For a unique reception or break, have your guests tour the Old Red Museum of Dallas County History & Culture galleries, located on our second floor.

The rental fee includes the facility, with exclusive use of your area, plus tables and chairs. Additional costs include security and parking. A county-owned parking garage is located just beneath Old Red providing more than 1100 parking spaces. If you would like to host the parking, you may purchase parking vouchers to give to your guests to exit the garage. There is ample space for valet parking, if you prefer. Security is included for events that take place before 5:00 pm. After 5:00 pm, we require security personnel on the premises. The fee for evening security is $35.00 per hour, per guard.
