Where should my guests park?
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.
Does the Museum have vendor relationships with catering services and other vendors that must be used?
We retain a preferred catering list, but if you have someone that you would prefer to use, we would be happy to consider them. We require that all caters be fully licensed and insured.

Where should my vendors deliver equipment, food, decorations etc. for my event at the Museum?
Meters on Main Street will be hooded for vendor deliveries and drop off the day of the event. If you deliver the day before or after the event is scheduled, please be prepared to pay for meter access. Meter availability is not guaranteed for non day-of-event deliveries.
Make sure to get a parking pass from the Guest Services desk located in the lobby of Old Red. Place the pass in the dashboard of your delivery vehicle to avoid a parking ticket. The Old Red Museum is not responsible for ticketed vehicles.
Load in may occur through the doors on the Main Street side. Alternatively, there is a ramp on the Commerce Street side of the building. Items can also be wheeled from Main Street to the Commerce Street entrance. There is no parking on Commerce Street.
After unloading your equipment, all vehicles less than 7-ft. in height must move to the parking garage to allow room for other vendors.
Additional vendor or event staff may park in the George Allen Senior parking garage with the entrance located on Commerce and Houston. The Old Red Museum does not validate parking. In many cases, the event client will provide parking vouchers for his/her vendors. Guest Services can be reached at 214-745-1100.
