Vault Room

Rent the Vault Room

Whimsical and unexpected. 

Named after the enormous double vault doors and salvaged safety deposit boxes that adorn its walls, the Vault Room is bedecked with historical St. Louis relics and a kaleidoscopic, awe-inspiring hallway of mirrors and a marble bar.

The Vault Room is especially beautiful for evening events as light filters through the wall of vintage Vess soda bottles and twinkling lights dangle from the ceiling. The details of City Museum’s Vault Room are sure to make every event unforgettable.

Venue capacity is 200 seated and 300 standing.

What’s Included

  • 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

*Admission during nonoperating hours requires an additional staffing fee to be applied. 

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. 

For information on rental availability and booking, please complete our event booking form online, or contact our Events Planner at 314-231-2489 ext. 117 or email
