Facility Rentals

The Albright-Knox Art Gallery offers its Auditorium and restaurant facilities for rentals Tuesday through Sunday during regular business hours, 7 am to 5 pm. AK Café and the museum’s Auditorium are unique settings for formal corporate events and informal breakfast gatherings. All event attendees have access to the museum’s world-renowned Collection of contemporary and modern art.

We regret that we are unable to accomodate weddings, wedding receptions, and fundraising events of any nature.

Facility rental fees are discounted 10% as a benefit of museum membership at the $300 level and above, and for not-for-profit organizations. Corporate business partners in the museum’s After Hours @ AK program receive a 15% discount. All facility fees directly support the Albright-Knox Art Gallery and include admission fees, a guided tour (docent or audio), parking, and security.
