    Incredible Accommodations at Such a Reasonable Price

    Debbie was amazing!! She helped every step of the way. She was quick to respond and accommodate. She helped us add a COVID addendum to our contract, then gave a full refund when we had to pull the plug on our big day. She was so understanding which we appreciated.

    This venue has everything and is so affordable for what you get. The courtyard is the perfect space and ambiance with the bistro lights. We loved the fact that the buffet could be covered. They provided tables, chairs, a bar, and staff members for the night. We also loved the front area, before the main doors. It is such a large space that overlooks Papago - perfect area to set up cornhole, tall boy tables, and host your cocktail hour. We also loved that the venue included in the total cost was free parking for guests, indoor restrooms, the option to move inside if need be, a conference room to hold our stuff and get ready in, and letting guests wander the exhibits all night. It's in a perfect location, right in the heart of Papago Park and just steps away from the most beutiful, scenic, desert landscape for photos. And there is so much to do in Tempe for your out of town guests! Right across from the Zoo, ASU campus, and golf course. Lots of nearby hotels and Uber everywhere. We will definitely be recommending this event space to all our friends and family for their weddings!

    So many great things to say

    I cannot hush enough about this amazing venue. Don was the most helpful- constantly responding to my crazy texts on the day of, answering all questions, and helping with as much as he could. The venue is gorgeous for an outside wedding, with so many great photo opportunities. Our original venue fell through a month before the wedding, and this place fell into our hands. I would recommend the venue to anyone who needs a lovely place to get married, or just a neat venue for an occasion.

    Shalonda at Arizona Historical Society Museum was very responsive and helpful with all of our needs for setting up the venue for our wedding day. She even agreed to have the temperature in one of storage rooms lowered so we could store all the flowers in there overnight as opposed to having to haul them all over in the morning. The venue looked great during our sunset ceremony and everyone was please with the amount of space to move around, and our out of town guests loved having the natural landscape as a backdrop. The option to choose all our own vendors and supply our own alcohol for the bar makes it the best value for a wedding venue in the Papago Park area hands down.
