At Just Catering, we believe that the culinary experience can only be enhanced by a unique venues. When you hold your party, wedding, or corporate meeting at the Hiller Aviation Museum in San Carlos, you can elevate the entire experience for your guests.
When renting the space, unlike perhaps some other venues, especially ballrooms or retreat centers, you have the whole place to yourself. Your guests can mingle and munch among vintage and futuristic aircraft, photograph displays, and aircraft models.
You can rent the whole museum or just specific spaces:
- Museum gallery
- Doyle conference room
- Hall of Fame room
- Boeing 747
- Flight simulation zone
In a venue like this, the culinary experience melds with the physical environment. Guests will have built-in topics of conversation. Maybe someone in their family is or has been an aviator. Maybe they’ll remember their first airplane experience. Maybe they’ve always wanted to see the cockpit up close and personal—but in a relaxed, no-risk environment.
To theme or not to theme?
When working with your caterer, you should decide whether to extend the aviation theme to creation of your menu. If you’re hosting a party for youngsters, this could be a clear choice of yes. If hosting a corporate event, you could make a clear connection of “soaring” to business and motivational goals. If hosting a celebration, using the Hiller Aviation Museum can uplift your guests. For all, attending a special event in this space will no doubt be memorable.
Conduct a site visit
As with any potential venue, an in-person visit is necessary. You need to see the space available and decide which room or the entire museum is right for your event. A site visit helps you visualize your event and note how all the pieces come together for the whole event. Take the following into account:
- Location of rest rooms
- Standing vs. sitting room
- Accommodations for the disabled
Know your budget ahead of time so you can make appropriate choices.
A note about catering at the museum
While the ambience is unparalleled, the culinary experience you deliver to your guests can be, too. For meals, caterers can prepare your menu on site. The museum has specific catering guidelines to be followed.
