Telfair Academy Rentals

The Telfair Academy, located on Telfair Square in the heart of the city’s famous historic district, has been Savannah’s wedding reception location of choice for decades. Tracing its history to 1883, Telfair Academy is the oldest public art museum in the South. Designed by English architect William Jay and completed c. 1820, the Telfair Academy is a National Historic Landmark building. This elegant building provides every event held there with a backdrop of world-class art and historic architecture. With its romantic, three-story Rotunda, classically beautiful Sculpture Gallery, remarkable period rooms, and intimate galleries featuring works from temporary traveling shows and from the museum’s own permanent collection, the Telfair Academy will make any size event truly memorable. The two largest rooms in the Telfair Academy are the Rotunda and the Sculpture Gallery. The Rotunda can accommodate as many as 100 for a sit-down dinner and 150 for a cocktail reception. The Sculpture Gallery can accommodate up to 100 for a sit-down dinner and 150 for cocktails. The facility provides ample room for musicians and dancing.
