Company Description

Glessner House Museum invites you to experience a gracious venue steeped in Chicago history. Tucked away in the Prairie Avenue Historic District of Chicago’s South Loop neighborhood, Glessner House provides a distinctive alternative to hotels and banquet halls. The Museum offers rental space for meetings, private parties, corporate events, and is one of Chicago's most distinctive wedding venues. A variety of spaces help make Glessner House Museum ideal for your event.


The Courtyard
4700 sq. ft.
Capacity: 150-200 people

Renovated in 2000, the Courtyard is one of the jewels in the Glessner House crown. A peaceful outdoor retreat, it is the perfect setting for a party or 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
1778 sq. ft.
Capacity: 80-150 people

Restored in 2006, this unique room originally served as the Glessners’ stables. Now it is a large, open space filled with historic details and character - perfect for your next event. A wonderful setting for large dinners, receptions and corporate events, it can be rented in combination with our Courtyard or as an alternative for rainy weather.


The Dining Room
485 sq. ft.
Capacity: 20-40 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
505 sq. ft.
Capacity: 20-40 people

Once an all-glass conservatory, this newly renovated space is ideal for conferences, retreats, lectures or small parties. The beautiful view of the Courtyard, the room's octagonal shape and vaulted ceiling make it a unique choice for any event. This space is offered as the "bridal room" for weddings in the Dining Room, Courtyard, or Coach House.
