About Fredericksburg Area Museum

From formal cocktail parties to business meetings, the Fredericksburg Area Museum has the unique spot you are looking for to host your next event. Whether your function is large or small, indoors or out, we will work with you individually to make sure our Museum is the perfect backdrop for your next special occasion. Built in 1816, the third floor of Town Hall was used as a City Council Chamber and as a space for members of the community to host banquets and other dinners. A beautiful room with hardwood floors, large windows and views of Market Square, this room is still a wonderful place to host events. The Council Chamber provides a historic and intimate setting for your dinner party, reception, or meeting. Dating to 1728, this cobblestone and brick square once housed the city’s primary marketplace. Today, it is one of a small number of outdoor venues in the historic district. It is our largest rental space and is a perfect location for galas and large receptions. We have also had organizations host BBQs and concerts in the square. Historic Market Square provides a wonderful backdrop of architecture and has an inviting atmosphere for any event.
