Your Event at MOA

Consider providing your clients, guests, conference delegates or professional team with an unforgettable evening in one of Canada’s foremost cultural attractions. Spaces at MOA can be rented for weddings or a variety of corporate and community events—all with opportunities for exclusive enjoyment of our galleries and stunning ocean views.

MOA offers spectacular indoor and outdoor spaces, from the dramatic Great Hall to the Sea-to-Sky views of the grounds. Trained staff are always on hand to provide tours and to offer information about the collections and topics related to First Nations and other cultures. Whether your event is a small corporate workshop or a catered wedding reception, MOA can provide a remarkable venue.

Please note: MOA cannot accommodate booking requests for any weddings (indoor or outdoor) in 2020 and 2021, due to seismic upgrades that will affect parts of the Museum.
