Private Events

Entertain in an elegant setting amid exhibitions of folk art, craft and design from throughout the world. Mingei International welcomes corporate groups, organizations and private groups. The Museum is available for receptions, dinners, luncheons and meetings – the perfect setting for groups of 50 – 300.

The Museum’s exhibitions provide an extraordinary setting for your dinner, reception or meeting. Located in San Diego’s glorious Balboa Park, Mingei International offers a convenient choice of venues and exhibitions. Private events during non-public hours allow use of the entire Museum.

The two-story Cornell Rotunda Gallery is a space to welcome your guests before they dine in the Warren Theater Gallery or mingle at a cocktail reception on the Upper Level, where they’ll be surrounded by elegant furniture designed by George Nakashima, the renowned 20th-century American woodworker.

Whatever your plans, Mingei International Museum offers the opportunity to entertain guests and colleagues surrounded by objects of rare beauty and originality.
