Looking for a distinctive space to host your next special event? Hagley Museum and Library has a wide range of buildings and rooms throughout our 235-acre property available to our members for private events. We can host an intimate lunch for 20 or cocktail party for up to 200. Our Hagley staff treats every event as a unique opportunity to use our space and is happy to answer any of your questions or to arrange a visit to our private event facilities.

Nestled in a private corner of the property, the historic Soda House provides a perfect space for weddings, birthdays, rehearsal dinners, or family reunions. With three rooms that can be mixed and matched to meet your events size and needs, and an outdoor space for cocktails or a wedding ceremony, the Soda House has the flexibility to host a wide range of events.

The Library building is available for evening and weekend parties with two spaces to choose from. The Copeland Room has warm, natural wood and a panoramic window with views of the property. It also has a large terrace that is wonderful for cocktails or an intimate outdoor meal. With floor- to-ceiling windows on two sides, the Reading Room is a light-filled space with gorgeous views that is ideal for a bridal or baby shower of 40 people or fewer.

Our Visitor Center along the river is home to three levels of exhibit space. Your guests have access to all three levels during an evening cocktail party for up to 200 people. Guests can mingle on the patio out front while listening to the sounds of the Brandywine River flowing past.

The E.I. du Pont garden is available for seasonal wedding ceremonies. With the historic du Pont residence as a backdrop and framed by lilacs and cherry trees, it’s a brilliant space for an elegant outdoor ceremony.
