museum frontShare the White River Valley Museum with friends, coworkers and family next time you plan an event. The Museum’s exhibits and layout encourage people to wander and mingle—an ideal spot for a reception or party. When planning your event, remember that there are no large open areas in the museum where over 40 people can gather to hear a speaker, and there is no sound system.
