Enjoy small town charm, with all the comforts of a modern facility! The Lake Pontchartrain Basin Maritime Museum has meeting and banquet rooms for your next business or social function that you can tailor to your own special design. Located on the banks of the Tchefuncte River, the Maritime Museum is the perfect venue for your unique event! The 3,600 square feet of combined banquet rooms has a wrap-around covered exterior porch, with tables and chairs, an optional dance floor and can accommodate up to 350 people. There also is ample parking for your guests and our facility is handicap accessible. Included in the event rental fee is the set-up and use of our chairs and 60” and 30” round tables, which seats 8 and 4 people respectively, and 6’ rectangle tables.

Off-site caterers are welcome, or serve your own prepared food out of our catering kitchen, which features a full-size convection oven, stove, conventional oven, and refrigerator. An on-site commercial-size ice-maker is available for your use as well. Daytime or evening hours are available seven days a week.

For smaller event rentals or an outside venue, visit the Maritime Museum Dock and historic Light Keepers Cottage on the Tchefuncte River, just east of the main museum buildings. Additional outdoor pads are available for a separate, nominal fee.

Please call the museum at (985)845-9200 or e-mail info@lpbmm.org to schedule an appointment and tour of our facilities.
