Glessner House Museum invites you to experience a gracious venue steeped in Chicago history. The Museum offers rental space for meetings, private parties, corporate events, and is one of Chicago's most distinctive wedding venues.

The Courtyard (3560 sq. ft.) - 150 to 200 people. This is one of the jewels in the Glessner House crown. A peaceful outdoor retreat, it is the perfect setting for a wedding ceremony and reception. This child friendly space, which can be tented, is also ideal for outdoor birthday parties and other family celebrations.

The Coach House (1670 sq. ft.) - 80 to 150 people. This unique room originally served as the Glessners' stables. Now a large, open space filled with historic details and character, it is a wonderful setting for large dinners, special receptions, and corporate events. It can be rented in combination with our Courtyard or as an alternative for rainy weather.

The Dining Room (480 sq. ft.) - 20 to 50 people. With a curved bay of windows that looks out to the Courtyard, this historic space is the only one available for rental on the museum's first floor. It can be used for a private dinner, small wedding ceremony, or shower. Adjacent to the parlor, the 1887 Steinway piano can be rented for musical entertainment during your event.

The Conservatory (460 sq. ft.) - 20 to 50 people. Once an all glass conservatory, this space is ideal for small parties, lectures, or general meetings. The room's octagonal shape, vaulted ceiling, and beautiful view of the Courtyard, make it a unique choice for any event. This space, also known as the Beidler Room, is offered as a "Bridal Suite" for wedding ceremonies held on site.
Glessner House Museum has received approximately 88 profile views in the last three months.
