    Gorgeous Historical Setting

    We held our wedding ceremony and reception outdoors at the Delaware Agricultural Museum's 1890's village in 2018. It was a very special day and a very special place to get married. We were so pleased to find such a beautiful location for our wedding, right in the heart of Dover!! The museum staff went out of their way to accommodate our needs and wishes for the wedding ceremony and reception set-up, no small feat with over 200 people attending. If you are planning to hold your wedding in the Dover area, you are not going to find a more beautiful setting or a better price!
