If your initial contact is not made within (14) days prior to the event, then payment in full is due on the initial contact date. Payments may be made in cash, check, or money order. Please make checks payable to the Treasurer of Virginia and send the check to Southwest Virginia Museum, P.O. Box 742, Big Stone Gap, VA 24219.

BOOKING THE FACILITY

The Victorian Parlor is booked in blocks of 4 hours. Deliveries, arrivals, set-up, clean up, pick-ups and departures must be considered in your planning time. Prior arrangements need to be made if you need to leave items until the next day.
