Beautiful Venue and Great Staff

Truly a dream venue. It was gorgeous and Paola was always so responsive helping us coordinate vendors and answering my many questions. I'd recommend this location without hesitation to any of my friends.

LOVED our ceremony on 10.8.23!

My husband and I loved our experience with the Maitland Art & History Center! It is such a beautiful, unique experience. We just did the ceremony in the Mayan Chapel and it was wonderful. Paola was so easy to work with, quick to communicate, and helpful with any questions. There isn't a location on site to get ready, so just know that you'll have to get and Air BnB or a hotel, but it's such a unique setting and it's so worth it. We had a 35 person wedding with guests coming from all over, and they were all in awe. I highly recommend a wedding at the MAC!

Beautiful and Unique

My husband and I hosted our March 2023 wedding at The Art & History Museums of Maitland, and cannot say enough good things about the entire property. We fell in love with the venue the second we set foot in the Main Garden during our first tour, and feel truly lucky that we were able to host such a beautiful, personal ceremony right in front of the lily pond. Our cocktail hour, which took place in the Mayan Courtyard and the West Garden, was spectacular. Lastly, our guests absolutely loved dancing under twinkle lights in the Rotary Event Plaza. This venue is truly special and represented everything we wanted out of a wedding. Paola was a joy to work with and helped to ensure our day was a success from start to finish. I highly recommend the Art & History Museums if you're looking for a beautiful, unique event space.
