The Coos History Museum offers a beautiful and lively place for holiday parties, weddings, hoe-downs, receptions, depositions, board retreats, or club and business meetings. The exterior of this brand-new building evokes the industrial architecture of Coos Bay’s working waterfront of a century ago. The view from the plaza takes in Coos Bay from the McCullough bridge at the north, past the confluence of the bay with the Coos River, to the hills of the Coast Range. From the tall windows of any of our rental rooms, you can regularly see tugs and barges passing the museum. Seasonally the bay fills with salmon boats. And if you’re really lucky, you can see harbor seals pop up from the water or a flock of great blue herons flap aloft from the ruins of the old Central Dock.

Inside, we offer modern conveniences such as WiFi, data projection, and a zoned sound system. Cost per guest is competitive with other, less interesting locations. Rooms for groups from 12 to 100 (or hundreds on our plaza) may be reserved for private events year round, Tuesday through Sunday, major holidays excluded.

Please see the Rentals Rate Sheet for more information.

We are proud to partner with Black Market Gourmet, Bon Appe’tit, The Coach House, Restaurant O and Wildflour Catering all of which are approved caterers that provide a wide variety of excellent, cost-effective options for events of all sizes. Access is easy, and for meetings, receptions, and retreats, light fare may be prepared in our kitchenette. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic closure, no events are being scheduled until futher notice. We are hopeful we can start taking reservations for events this Fall 2020. Please check back at a later date for an update on availability or contact us at
