Columbia Gorge Discovery Center

Up to 300 guests


People from all over the world come to the Columbia River Gorge to make their vows. A rugged gorge chiseled by history, river and time creates a spectacular backdrop for special events – especially weddings. Nestled into 54 acres of grounds, the Columbia Gorge Discovery Center and Museum offers a panoramic vista of the Columbia River and surrounding landscape – truly a picturesque setting waiting to compliment your unforgettable ceremony.

Talk about a breathtaking space! The Meyer Memorial River Gallery creates memories from the moment you step inside. The raw timber columns and basalt rock walls perfectly frame the 30 foot wall of windows, while views of the rolling Klickitat Hills and the Columbia River complete the space. The River Gallery is a perfect blend of rustic charm and stunning elegance.

The Columbia Gorge Discovery Center & Museum is a full-service venue offering delectable on-site catering courtesy of the Rooted in the Gorge, full-service bar, day of venue coordination, and a seasoned staff. Let us handle the details so you and your guests can be present in the moment to create memories that will last a lifetime.
