CAM is an absolutely amazing venue for wedding celebrations. We used it both Friday night for a Welcome Party and Sat. night for the wedding reception. Part of the reason we selected the venue was that it has a gorgeous patio for outside events and also a lovely indoor reception hall in case of bad weather. As it so happened, due to thunderstorms, we did have to set up inside for the Welcome Party, and I was so thankful we had that option without worrying about tents.Sent on 11/04/2016
Heather Ivady is the event coordinator and she was absolutely wonderful from the time we expressed interest in reserving the museum throughout the entire wedding weekend six months later. She was extremely professional and went well above and beyond what was expected of her. She has a great sense of humor and was not ruffled by requests or last minute adjustments, and she also has a positive working relationship with local vendors.
CAM does require you to purchase alcohol thru them. Je, the person in charge of the bar services also was a delight to work with and so helpful in deciding everything from number of glasses needed to types of wine and beer to select.
We did pay a small additional fee to have two wings of the museum open one night, and guests loved being able to wander thru the exhibits and get a sense of the museum itself. This museum is so bright and festive that you really don't need many decorations to make it look and feel "wedding special".
There were just over 100 guests and the space was more than large enough to accommodate that number with room to
It truly was the perfect place for our needs and we are so grateful to all the staff for their courtesy and assistance.

We always knew we wanted to have our wedding at CAM, and I'm so glad we were able to make that a reality. It was the perfect venue for us. The prices are really reasonable, and Heather was very flexible and easy to work with. We were able to rent the whole museum so that our guests could explore the exhibits during cocktail hour. CAM also allowed our wedding planner to set up the tent and lighting the day before the wedding. Also, another thing that was really important to us was that our guests have convenient parking and be allowed to leave their cars overnight in case they drank a little too much. CAM has an on-site parking lot and allowed cars to stay through the night. I loved using the museum as a unique wedding venue, and I would definitely recommend it to friends and family!Sent on 10/28/2014
