    Unique Wedding Venue for Museum & Space Lovers

    I was the wedding planner/coordinator for a wedding at the Boonshoft Museum a few months ago. I cannot say enough good things about the space and their staff! Mandy was responsive, friendly, and helpful in the weeks leading up to and on the day of the wedding. The rest of the staff was also fantastic - ready and willing to help with whatever we needed throughout the day.

    Couples who choose to get married here are in for a real treat! In addition to being just a super cool space for an event with many exhibits open for guests to explore, the museum created a customized star movie in the theatre which showed the constellations and planets at various important dates throughout their relationship (the day they met, got engaged, their wedding date, etc.) It was nerd-tastic.

    I highly recommend the Boonshoft Museum as a wedding venue.

    I can't say enough good things about this vendor. From the moment I toured the location until the day of the wedding, everything was thoroughly explained and highly organized. My guests loved this venue and thought I had spent a fortune on it. There are plenty of options when it comes to spaces to rent and all of them are very unique. The staff was friendly and always in the know of what was going on. Amanda, the on site coordinator, was very responsive and flexible. Thanks so much for helping our day be perfect!

    Definitely the most interesting venue in Dayton, appealing to the "nerdiness" in all of us. There is more to see and interact with at Boonshoft than you could imagine. Check them out for sure. Also a very competant and conscientious staff.
