    Gorgeous and super easy to work with

    What a beautiful venue! The main function hall is extremely beautiful, huge, high-ceilinged, brick, and kind of industrial. The body of the museum is really cool, with so many objects big and small to look at. And, as a huge bonus, it's right on the Charles, so there's gorgeous running water and trees to take photos next to if you want!

    Jillian at the CRMII is also great to work with--there are some people in the world who are just On Top Of Everything and I think Jillian is one. It was a pleasure to do business with the venue because of her.

    All dressed up on the night of, the museum was stunning. The museum staff sticking around to make sure that everything went smoothly were super nice, and very present & available. I think working with CRMII was as perfect of a venue experience as you're gonna get. Now I want all my friends to get married so I can tell them to get married there :)

    History Meets Elegance

    If you're looking for a laid-back and historical venue, the Charles River Museum in Waltham, MA is just what you're looking for! With 104 guests, most from out of town, this was the perfect venue for people to catch up, learn about my hometown and enjoy great food and drinks.

    Jill, the event coordinator, was willing to help with any before, day of or after things my groom and I needed. She also walked us through the entire day so that we had a piece of mind.

    I can't wait to go back and see more exhibits when I return home for the holidays :)

    Incredible Experience

    We couldn't be happier with our choice of the Charles River Museum as a wedding venue. Jill and her team were wildly accommodating throughout the process and worked with us to structure an event that aligned with our vision. Jill worked closely with the wedding planner, caterer, florist, DJ, and games vendor to ensure that all parties had everything they needed to make the evening a success. The space is suitable for a range of purposes. We had a pre-ceremony cocktail party downstairs in the main exhibit hall, held the wedding ceremony in the main upstairs room, and used the adjacent upstairs spaces - including the gallery - for games. The venue's ramps made the transitions accessible to guests with mobility impairments, a key consideration for our elderly attendees. The river boardwalk provided an ideal backdrop for pre-wedding photos, and the whole event looks incredible on camera. We're fortunate to have found the CRMII and would recommend it enthusiastically to anyone in the market for a unique wedding venue in the Boston area.
