A Montgomery County museum known for its 15-foot high heel shoe and a castle built from 400,000 Popsicle sticks is now offering to host private events to boost business, writes Kenneth Hilario for Philadelphia Business Journal.
Oaks’ The American Treasure Tour that houses a collection of American antiques and various other memorabilia is making some of its space available for groups of up to 300 people.
The American Treasure Tour’s Director Virginia Frey said that the 100,000-square-foot facility’s availability for events is an exciting opportunity which could lead to increased visitors.
Rental fees for the different spaces within the museum that can host groups from 50 to several hundred guests start at $2,000. The museum, which is housed in a former B.F. Goodrich tire factory, could also be used as a backdrop for events, or the events can incorporate the museum’s collection with custom guided tours.
“We have found that events increase our exposure and have inspired many to revisit during our Saturday general admission time as well as return for group and custom tours,” noted Frey.
