The museum was the perfect place for our wedding reception. We had 300 guests attend. We had a cocktail hour, seated dinner and dancing. They was ample space for everyone. Jamie Nicholson and her staff are amazing to work with. Very professional group of people. It was a beautiful night thanks to them.Sent on 06/29/2017
