Rental Picture 1The Jimmy Stewart Museum offers a unique venue for your next event – flexible space for a corporate function or a family reception, plus entertainment no traditional gathering place can match! We will tailor a package for you, accomodating up to 125 guests.

Your guests can explore the galleries to discover the history of Indiana’s most famous son, whose acclaimed acting career spanned much of America’s film history. By prior arrangement, your group can…

…be greeted by the character “Harvey” from Stewart’s beloved film.

…receive a hosted tour through the museum.

…watch a Jimmy Stewart movie in the Museum Theater.

We will work with you and your caterer to help your event run smoothly. The Museum is a “carry-in/carry-out” site. The Indiana Free Library kitchen can be rented for use by your caterer, and a staging room is available on the Museum floor. A staff member will be on site to assist you and your guests during your event in the Museum, as specified in our guidelines.
