Cabin Inn & Patio

Rent the Cabin Inn & Patio

Pull up a chair and stay awhile!

The Cabin Inn is a frontier log cabin from the early 19th century that now stands proudly underneath MonstroCity at City Museum. Once home to the son of Daniel Boone, the cabin was later purchased by the Hezel Family, who owned the cabin for more than 100 years. In the mid-1990s, the cabin was transported from its original site on a Missouri farm to its present location at City Museum. The Cabin Inn can either be enjoyed indoors or on our spacious brick patio (weather permitting) surrounded by the mystifying skies of MonstroCity. 

Venue capacity is 40 seated and 65 standing.

  • Exclusive use of the selected area
  • Round tables and chairs for seating up to the capacity of the room
  • General admission* access to City Museum on the day of your event; Rooftop access is not included, but can be added for an additional fee March-October, weather permitting

Book an Event

We begin booking events one year in advance and can reserve dates up to two weeks prior to the event date. One date in one room may be temporarily held for up to two weeks with no contract or money. If you’re ready to secure a date, a $500 nonrefundable deposit and signed contract are required. Once reserved, events may not be canceled but may be rescheduled as long as the new date is available and falls within a year of the old.
