Plan an Event


At this time, the Hilliard Art Museum is undergoing a transition period on our grounds, and we are no longer accepting reservations for weddings and large events occurring after July 1, 2020.

We continue to welcome photography sessions and photo shoots.



The plaza and grounds outside of the museum facilities are available at no cost for photographers.

The museum cannot provide any changing area for these photo shoots. If you would like to hold a photo shoot inside of the A. Hays Town Building, this must be booked in advance. If an exhibition is on view, no photo shoots may occur inside the building during this time. Availability is also subject to any previously scheduled facility rentals.

The cost to use the A. Hays Town Building for a session is $100 for a minimum of 2 hours, each additional hour is $50.

Photo shoots may only be scheduled during hours in which museum personnel is on the property.

  • Mondays, 9 AM – 5 PM
  • Tuesdays, 9 AM – 5 PM
  • Wednesdays, 9 AM – 8 PM
  • Thursdays, 9 AM – 5 PM
  • Fridays, 9 AM – 5 PM
  • Saturdays, 10 AM – 5 PM

*No photo shoots may occur inside of the main museum building.

The use of glitter and confetti in photoshoots is strictly prohibited on the museum grounds, as it damages the fountain and is difficult to clean up.

If you would like to schedule a photo shoot inside of the A. Hays Town Building, please contact Greta Gerstner at 337.482.1368 or by using the contact form below.


* Required


We reserve the right to deny the use of our facilities to any person or organization at any time and to deny the continued use of said facilities to any user who does not comply with the museum’s policies and procedures.
