Which caterer may I use?
Energy supply / Technical equipment
The museum can provide a maximum electrical power of 5KW in triphase. If more power is required, the client is responsible for requesting an additional supply from the electric company. The museum does not provide technical equipment, such as audio systems, microphones, lighting, etc., which should be rented from museum-approved suppliers.
In case of inclement weather, does the museum offer a back-up solution?
The Nasher Sculpture Garden and the panoramic Roof Terrace are both open-air, outdoor locations. The only indoor back-up space is offered by the Museum Café for a maximum of 50 people, for either cocktails or dinner. The large umbrellas on the panoramic Roof Terrace can operate under light rain only. For events with more than 50 guests, we recommend you outsource an external back-up location in case of bad weather.
