Facility Rentals

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, rentals are limited to events that allow for social distancing and do not serve food or drinks. 

Choose the historic 1873 Pirie House at the Dundas Museum & Archives for your next event. This warm, inviting and bright space is perfect for small private functions, special events, public lectures and meetings.

The rental space can comfortably host 90 people for a standing reception or up to 60 seated at tables. You will find plenty of complimentary 6′ x 30″ plastic tables and padded folding chairs for your needs. The Museum welcomes caterers of the renter’s choosing, but asks to be informed of their contact information should the need for coordination arise. Renters are permitted to serve wine or beer, and are required to get a liquor license and provide us with a copy.

New rates available including discounts for Dundas residents and special pricing for Friends of the Museum.

The Museum now offers rentals for dishes, glassware, and more! See our full Pricing Guide.

Our building is fully wheelchair accessible, and there is plenty of free street parking. For more information, see our Accessibility Page.

Rental insurance is optional but recommended. Insurance may be obtained by the insurer of the renter’s choosing. For a $25 discount on insurance from Front Row Insurance Brokers, use promo code DUNDASEVENT.
