Individuals or organizations interested in unique gathering in a museum setting are welcome to use the North West Company Fur Post Visitor Center for meetings, conferences, classes, memorials, lectures, weddings, concerts, receptions, and luncheons.
The Visitor Center is available year round, but is based around public programming.
The Visitor Center features two great spaces to host an event. The first is the Great Hall, which features a beautiful wood interior, a magnificent stone fireplace and a wall of windows overlooking the south meadow. The Library is the second space and offers a more traditional classroom setup. A perfect space for breakout sessions or a little more privacy.
The exterior yard is available in warmer weather. The Visitor Center is handicap-accessible. The Fur Post is open for guests to tour as part of their event for an additional charge.
Parking is available in our private parking lot.
