    A wonderfully unique venue

    From start to finish we were incredibly pleased with CRMII.

    We worked with Jillian initially and her knowledge about the space and friendliness was fantastic. After working with Jillian we started working with Anna who was such a pleasure to work with on the day of the event and after.

    The pricing structure is very transparent and I never felt like I was hoodwinked by it. The events packet that the museum provides is incredibly helpful as well. It helped us nail down our vendor team within a few weeks.

    Our guests LOVED the space. Having a January wedding it was great to have a space that allowed the guests to escape the load dance music or just be away from the reception hall.

    The venue truly allows you to be creative with your decor and how you set up the space. I would highly recommend using the Charles River Museum as part of your special day! We do not regret it in the slightest!

    Stunning Venue

    We still have guests talking about how amazing our venue was. I knew that I wanted something different for our wedding. I had no idea what we were in for when we walked into the CRMII. It was amazing. All exposed brick, old antique everything - it is what my dreams were made of. From day one, Jillian was wonderful to work with. We met with her and different vendors quite a few times and she was always flexible - even meeting us there in a snowstorm one day. The venue was made even more beautiful by adding greenery and candles. It was truly a dream wedding.

    11/9/19 Wedding

    HOLY CRAP we love the Charles River Museum!!! This was truly our dream venue and such a special place to have our wedding. Honestly, the space speaks for itself. Jill was so wonderful to work with and answered all of our questions so quickly. We were able to drop off all of our decorations a few days early, and she made sure everything was where it needed to be. On the day of our wedding, she greeted us a big smile! When we weren't sure about the order for walking in to the ceremony, she made a great suggestion that ended up working perfectly! The entire space is absolutely beautiful and so many of our guests loved that they could tour many of the exhibits while enjoying a drink. The Jackson Room is our favorite part of the museum with its beautiful brick walls and the back room that over looks the Charles River. We are beyond happy that we chose the Charles River Museum as our wedding venue and can't believe that we were able to have our wedding in such a breathtaking space! Thank you!!!
