Party at the Museum


Have your party at the Memphis Railroad & Trolley Museum!

Birthday parties at the MRTM have really taken off – creating many happy memories for parents and children.

The charge for use of the party room during regular museum hours is $140.00* for up to 25 attendees. Additional guests are welcome and will be charged the regular $3.00 admission.

It should be understood that the party room will not seat over 25. A reservation is normally for two hours but guests are invited to spend additional time as required to tour the museum.  We have a number of interactive items children may operate.

The museum furnishes tables, chairs and plain tablecloths with the person having the party supplying all food, drinks, plates, cups, napkins and utensils.

Please provide enough adult supervision for all the young party goers in your group. The museum’s volunteer staff will be in attendance and happy to help enhance the experience but are not able to supervise your group.

We recommend that you visit us on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday to get an idea of what we have to offer. A $40.00 deposit is required when you reserve the room payable by cash, check or credit card.
