The largest lecture/meeting room can be partitioned to create two separate breakout rooms with a third breakout room across the hall. With about 2500 square feet of space available for special event needs and room for about 122 guests, SunWatch provides a comfortable and spacious setting for workshops or retreats.

Outside the Museum lies the reconstructed Village on the original site of an 800-year-old American Indian Village. Experience the heritage of the Fort Ancient people as you enter replicas of their homes and gardens–perfect for a corporate picnic.
