    Fantastic place to get married!!!

    My husband and I were married at the Delaware Agricultural Museum at the end of March. The setting was so beautiful, it was like a scene out of a movie. We originally requested that the museum stage the seating in front of their pretty covered bridge, then the old mill which is really cool (!) . We returned again and again to tour the grounds we finally decided to hold our ceremony in front of the beautiful red barn that is on the property. It set everything off so nicely and our guests loved it. Everyone was taking pictures before during and after the ceremony! We held a cocktail party in the garden and had a wonderful sit-down supper served in the museum’s gallery.

    Such a cool place to get married!

    This space was amazing for the 100 guests we had. All of our guests were surprised that this gem could be a great wedding venue! We went with a fall theme and it really tied in well with the exhibits. I am now looking for another reason to rent out space for an event. We had our event in the main great space but there are several smaller rooms that would work well for a smaller crowd or another event like a birthday party. We also had time during our reception to go outside to take a few pictures with the photographer that came out amazing.
