The United States Marshals Museum (USMM) is the newest events venue in Fort Smith and the only one with 180 degree views of the Arkansas River on the riverfront. A brand New world-class, state-of-the-art facility, the USMM is the perfect location for corporate events, luncheons, professional development training, annual galas, weddings, receptions, conference sessions, promos, and more. With intimate spaces of 650 square feet for small gatherings and up to 13,949 square feet for large events, the USMM has the space you need!


As a visitor enters through the Vestibule from the main parking area, the  Atrium is a breath-taking area with its wall of windows showcasing the Arkansas River.  The Atrium features 40-foot ceilings, automatic window shades, dimmable lights, and direct access to the outside patio.  This space allows for nearly 400 people for theatrical seating or for standing cocktail parties, or be used to seat up to 250 people comfortably for dinners.



West Patio

The West Patio can be used as a stand-alone area for friends to gather for an outside event, or as an excellent addition to the Atrium.  The West Patio is directly outside from the Atrium, providing a quiet view of the Arkansas River.  This space is well used as the cocktail-hour space for guests arriving early for an event to be held indoors, or as a space for party-goers to get outside for a breath of fresh air during an evening’s celebration.


Temporary Gallery

The Temporary Gallery, just off the Atrium, is a blackened room available for a variety of uses, decorations, and sound.  This versatile space will accommodate up to 568 people in a theatrical seating layout.  With its open ceiling with lighting grid that can be used with rented theatrical fixtures, the Temporary Gallery is a blank canvas for you to create your own unique atmosphere.
