Host an inspiring event

Prepare to explore the most distinctive event venue in Dallas-Fort Worth


As seen in D WeddingsThe Perot Museum is a one-of-a-kind location available as the perfect setting for your wedding, reception, meeting or social gathering. Conveniently located and easily accessible, the Museum is in Victory Park, adjacent to the West End Historic District, near some of Dallas' best hotels.

An event at the Museum guarantees an exceptional experience. Our building features 11 permanent exhibition halls, a state-of-the-art gallery designed to host world-class traveling exhibitions, and an elegant 297-seat theater with one of the most sophisticated digital projection and sound systems available. 

Plan your next unforgettable event at the Perot Museum. From the moment guests step onto the grounds, each of the five levels within this modern marvel is sure to inspire. Our experienced event-planning staff will assist you in creating an innovative and impeccable event that's tailored to your needs from start to finish.

It has been two weeks since our event and I am still receiving thank you calls and emails from guests. Our event at the Perot Museum left a lasting impression on everyone. I don't know how we are going to top this special evening!
We are so glad we chose the Perot Museum for our event! We had the best attendance & received rave reviews from our clients for this year's choice of the Perot Museum. It was fun & interesting. The entire staff couldn't have been more helpful. What a great evening it was!
The Perot Museum has taken great care to provide the perfect experience for an event whether it be for a corporate event, or a personal celebration.
There was no place in Dallas better than the Perot Museum to celebrate Greenberg Traurig’s 10th Anniversary in Dallas. We had an opportunity to provide exclusive access to the entire museum to our clients and staff for this occasion. The food was terrific and the staff at the Perot has worked with me for over 6 months to make sure that this event was perfect. It is important to note that although they do private events every weekend, I was treated like my event was the ONLY one going on. It was obvious, however, on the night of our celebration that these are trained professionals that know how to take care of every detail of an event. The value of the day of support from Wolfgang Puck Catering and the museum staff far exceeded the price we paid!
